The theory test now consists of two parts, the multiple choice questions and the hazard perception test. You must pass both parts to pass your theory test.
The multiple choice section consists of 50 questions which you will be required to answer in 57 minutes. You can answer the questions by touching the correct box on the computer screen. The software is quite simple to use and you will have the option of a 15 minute practice session before the real test begins.
During the test you can flag any questions that you would like to come back to later, and return to them once you've reached the end of the 50 questions. It is a good idea to use all of your allotted time to go over the questions again just in case you've made any obvious mistakes. The PASS MARK for this section is 43 out of 50.
When you have finished the multiple choice section you can have a 3 minute break before the Hazard Perception section starts.
This begins with a tutorial showing what you need to do for the test; there is also an option to repeat this tutorial.
The Hazard Perception test consists of 14 movie clips which are approximately 1 minute long. As soon as you see a hazard developing you must click the left mouse button to show the application that you are aware of this. You will receive the maximum 5 points if you click just as the hazard develops. A hazard is anything that could cause you, the driver, to change speed or direction. The Pass Mark for this section is 44 out of 75.
