The driving theory test is in two parts – a question part and a hazard perception part. Both parts have to be passed at the same time and the whole theory test must be passed before you can apply for the practical driving test.

The first part of the theory test has 50 multiple choice questions on computer. The pass mark for this part is 43 out of 50.

Hazard Perception (HPT)
After you have completed the multiple choice questions, the hazard perception test will start. It consists of 14 clips of film each lasting around 30 seconds. In total there are 15 “developing hazards” that you will need to identify. The sooner you identify the scoring hazards, the higher your score. There is a maximum of 5 points per scoring hazard. You just need to click the mouse, you don’t need to move the mouse cursor over the hazard. The hazard perception pass mark is 44 out of 75
