|The Theory Test
The Theory Test changed in September 2002,it now comprises of two elements, Multiple Choice and Hazard Perception.
In the Multiple Choice section you are asked 50 questions and you must answer 43 of these correctly to pass. There are many publications available to help you with this section, we recommend that you only purchase material that is approved by the D.S.A., such as The Highway Code, The Official Theory Test for Drivers, The Driving Manual, Know Your Traffic Signs etc.
The Hazard Perception Test consists of 14 video clips in which there are 15 Developing Hazards, you must identify all 15 hazards to pass this element. There are few means of doing homework for this part of the test, however during your driving lessons you will be actively encouraged to identify hazards well in advance, by your Instructor. We are also able to help you with this part at one of our Training Sessions.
You must pass both parts of the Test in one 'sitting' otherwise you will have to re-take both parts of the Theory Test.
We have devised a classroom course to help with both parts of the Theory test, with some excellent results from candidates. The national pass rate is around 50%, candidates who have done the course however have a pass rate in excess of 90%. We therefore strongly recommend the course to all of our pupils.
