The test comprises of two sections, the multiple-choice section and the hazard perception section,
The multiple-choice section has two kinds of questions that ask about driving rules and behaviour. The first kind is simply a question followed by a response in which candidates must select one correct answer. The second kind is considered a case study, in which test takers read a short story based on real-life experiences, and then answer questions about the story.
The hazard perception section requires candidates to watch short video clips of real-life scenarios and click the screen when they spot hazards on the road. This tests the candidate’s ability to spot developing hazards, which are hazards that require the driver to take action.
There are 14 one-minute video clips.
Score up to 5 points per recognised hazard. The number of points awarded depends on how soon you recognise the hazard. You do not lose points for clicking incorrectly. You gain no points for continuous clicking or clicking in a pattern.You have one attempt per video and you many not review or revise your answers afterwards.
The candidate must pass both sections of the theory test to obtain a pass certificate that lasts for 2 years. If you fail, you must wait for 3 days before attempting to retake the full test, even if you only failed one section. The passing score for the multiple-choice section is 43/50, and for the hazard perception section, it is 44/75.
