There are 4 sections on the first part of the theory test. Each section has 25 questions so 100 questions in all.
You will be able to choose between 4 possible answers for each of the questions. The test will consist of hazard perception and multiple-choice questions and will take about 1 hour and 45 minutes to complete.
These will be based on:
- All road procedure
- Car control, pedestrians, signals and traffic signs and mechanical knowledge
- The driving test, law and disabilities
- Instructional techniques and publications
You will then have to complete the second part of the test. This will be the Hazard Perception. You will have to show that you can identify what the hazards are that may arise when you are driving around.
There will be 14 video clips that will be played to you on a computer. They will all last for 1 minute. These will show a variety of driving hazards, the kind of things that can happen every day on the road. If you see a hazard on the test then you can click on the mouse to indicate that you have seen it. The quicker you do this, the higher your score will be.
In 1 of the clips, you will see2 developing hazards. In the other 13, you will see 1 developing hazard.
What is a developing hazard?
This is when something happens and you have to change your direction or the speed you are driving at while you are driving on the roads.
If you want to pass this test then you will have to score at least 57 out of 75. For each hazard you will get 5 points.
What you will need
You will need to bring your driving licence with you on the day of your training test. If by any chance you still have a paper licence then you must bring your passport too.
If you bring any other type of photo idea then this will not be accepted. The test will be cancelled and you will have to pay for another test at a later date. It is a good idea to look presentable and that your car does too.
