Theory Test

The driving theory test is in two parts - a multiple choice question part and a hazard perception (HPT) part. Both parts have to be passed at the same time and the whole theory test must be passed before you can make your application for the practical driving test. Details of local theory test centres are below.

The first part of the theory test has 50 multiple choice questions which are shown on a touch screen computer. The pass mark to be achieved for this part is 43 out of 50. You can learn for the theory test using recommended resources such as books and dvd's.

Hazard Perception (HPT)
When you've completed the question part of the test, there will be a short delay and then the hazard perception test will start. This part of the test consists of 14 clips of film each lasting around 30 or 40 seconds. In total there are 15 "developing hazards" that you will need to identify. The sooner you identify the scoring hazards, the higher your score. There is a maximum score of 5 points per scoring hazard. You just need to click the mouse, not move the mouse cursor over the hazard. The pass mark for the hazard perception tests is 44 out of 75.
