FAQ:

Theory test guide

Passing the theory test is one of the vital steps towards gaining your driving licence. The official DVSA guide is a short video lasting a couple of minutes that explains all the important information you need to know.

How soon can I take my driving theory test?

You need to be at least 17 years of age or above and hold a provisional driving licence in order to take the theory test.

What to expect in a theory test?

The Driving Theory test consists of two tests, both to be taken together on the same day. The first is a multiple-choice test that will test your knowledge on the rules of the road and the second is a Hazard perception test that will assess how you respond as a driver to hazardous situations on the road. The theory test will be taken on a computer at an official DVSA centre.

Can I start taking driving lessons before doing my theory test?

There is nothing stopping you from taking your theory test before starting your practical driving lessons. The knowledge gained from preparing for your theory test will help you in your practical lessons when you are on the road.

Can I do my theory test after taking my practical test?

No, this is not possible. The DVSA will allow you to book your practical test only after you have passed your theory test, so it’s essential that you pass your theory test first.

Hazard Perception Guide

The purpose of the hazard perception test is to test a driver’s ability to respond to developing hazards by using various skills like reducing speed, changing direction to avoid impending danger. The official DVSA guide is a short video that explains all that you need to know regarding the Hazard Perception test.

Hazard Perception in a nutshell

Hazard perception is the ability of the driver to foresee any impending danger by spotting developing hazards whilst driving and taking the correct course of action to divert the danger.

It involves some basic techniques and skills which are essential to be a safe and roadworthy driver. These include anticipating danger, planning ahead, driving at the optimum speed, maintaining a safe distance from any vehicle in front of you, amongst other skills.

What is the maximum number of hazards I can expect to find?

Out of the 14 video clips you will watch, you can expect to find a total of 15 hazards. There will be13 hazards in 13 clips and 2 hazards in 1 clip making it a total of 15 hazards to find.

Can I go back and revisit the video clips?

No, this is not possible. Once you have viewed a video clip you cannot go back and view it again or change your response.

What can I do to score well in the hazard perception test?

Put yourself in the driver’s seat and imagine that the scenes in the video clips are happening right in front of you whilst you are driving. Concentrate well, anticipate unforeseen situations and as soon as you spot something that you need to react to as a driver, you should click on your mouse. Keep your eyes wide open for any impending hazards that are developing as you drive along so that you can react at the earliest.

How are marks awarded for the Hazard Perception test?

In total there are 15 hazards to spot and each hazard is worth a maximum of 5 points. You will be awarded the points based on your speed in recognising the hazard. If you spot a hazard as soon as it starts to develop, you will be given the top marks of 5 points. This will start to decrease with the time you take to recognise and respond to it. The more time you take to respond, the lower your points will be. You will be given 0 points if you miss spotting a hazard.
