THEORY TEST (As of January 2016)
The existence of a Theory Test is to develop higher levels of road safety. The Driving Standards Agency Theory Test is reduced from 50 to 45 questions with multiple-choice answers.
The new test will have an additional set of 5 questions concerned with a dedicated “Case – Study”. The candidate will be presented with a set of facts (the Case Study) which will appear on the left hand side of the screen. See below for example.
The time allowed for the Theory questions is 57 minutes.
The pass mark is 43 out of 50. The fee is £23.00.
All theory training, Highway Code, CD’S and DVD’S including Hazard Perception Tests are available from your Driving Instructor.
