The driving theory test is a screen based test, consisting of two parts (theory and hazard perception).
It has been devised to test your knowledge of driving theory, in particular the rules of the road and the best driving practice.
Your knowledge of this information is tested in the theory part, in the form of 50 multiple choice questions. You select your answers for this part of the test by simply touching the screen.
Only one question will appear on the screen at a time. Most questions will ask you to select one correct answer from four possible answers given. Some questions may ask for two or three correct answers from the selection, but this is clearly shown.
Take your time and read the questions and answers carefully, although they are not intended to trick you, the answers may be very similar.
You are given 57 minutes for this part of the mock theory test, so relax and avoid rushing. Some questions may take longer to answer than others but for those that your not sure about, you have the option of 'flagging' them and then coming back to it later.
Make sure you answer all of the questions and before you click finish, use the review function to check all have been completed.
Our FREE mock theory test questions will cover a variety of topics relating to road safety, the environment and documentation.
Each mock theory test consists of 50 questions and has a pass mark similar to the real theory test, of at least 43.
