The Driving Theory Test

The theory test is made up of two parts.

Multiple Choice

The multiple choice test is delivered using a touch screen computer and mouse.

You can choose to go through a practice session of the multiple choice questions to get used to the layout of the test, before the real test begins.

A question and several answer options will appear onscreen and you have to select the correct answer to the question by touching the screen.

For cars and motorcycles you'll be asked 50 questions in 57 minutes. The pass mark is 43 out of 50.

Hazard Perception

The hazard perception test records your responses through the use of a computer mouse button.

After a 3 minute break you'll then be shown a short tutorial video clip about how the hazard perception part works.

You will be presented with a series of 14 video clips which feature every day road scenes. In each clip there will be at least one developing hazard, but one of the clips will feature two developing hazards.

To achieve a high score you'll need to respond to the developing hazard during the early part of its development. The maximum you can score on each hazard is five.

You will not be able to review your answers to the hazard perception test; as on the road, you'll only have one chance to respond to the developing hazard.

The pass mark for the car and motorcycle hazard perception part of the theory test is 44 out of 75.

At the end of the test, you will be given your result by the test centre staff. You will need to pass both parts to successfully complete your theory test.
