If you've got your provisional licence, then you're ready to get started becoming a safe and responsible driver and the theory test is the first test to complete!

The theory test is split into two tests. The first part is a computerised touch-screen, multiple choice test and the second is a hazard perception video test. Both parts have to be passed to get an overall pass certificate, fail one part and you have to re-take it all again. You have to pass your theory test before you can even apply for the practical driving test.

The multiple choice theory part


Instructions will appear before you start the test explaining what to do. A practice session is available before you start.


You have to get through 50 questions, each with several possible answers and some questions will require more than one answer. The 50 questions will be from a bank of over 1000 questions. You'll have to get at least 42 questions correct.

You can flag questions to come back to later.
You'll also be shown a video clip scenario. 3 questions will be based on this short video clip.
You're allowed 57 minutes.
Once you pass the theory and hazard perception test you will get a pass certificate. This is valid for two years and you'll need it to book the practical test. If you don't pass your practical driving test within two years then you will have to take another theory test.
You're not allowed to take any personal belongings into the test room. A locker will be provided for your personal items.
No talking to other candidates is allowed in the test room.
You can have a break of 3 minutes before the hazard perception test begins.
