The theory test explained......

Multiple-choice questions.

You have 57 minutes to answer 50 multiple-choice questions.

Before the test starts you’ll get:

  • instructions on how the test works
  • the chance to do some practice questions to get used to the screens

How the test works

A question and several possible answers appear on a screen. You have to select the right answer.

Some questions are given as a case study. The case study will:

  • show a short story that 5 questions will be based on
  • be about a real life situation you could come across when driving

Leaving a question

You can ‘flag’ questions that you want to come back to later.

Changing your answers

You can go back to any question to review and change your answer at any point.

When you’ve finished

You can finish the multiple-choice questions part when you’ve answered all of the questions. You don’t have to use the full 57 minutes.


Pass mark and test result

You’ll get the result at the test centre after taking the theory test. You must pass both parts to pass the test.  

  Test part   Pass mark                      Points available
Multiple-choice questions   43 50
Hazard perception   44 75

If you pass

You’ll get a letter with a pass certificate number at the test centre. You need this when you book and take your driving test.

Your pass certificate number lasts for 2 years. You must pass your driving test in that time, otherwise you’ll have to pass the theory test again.

If you fail

You’ll get a letter at the test centre. It’ll tell you which parts you didn’t score enough points on so you know what to practise.

You must book and take the full test again, even if you passed one part this time.

You have to wait at least 3 working days before taking your test again.

Practice Theory Test for Car Drivers (1 of 2 tests)

You can take the practice test in either

  • 'practice view’ - designed to work on most PCs, mobiles and tablets
  • ‘test view’ - this looks similar to the screens at the theory test centre.


You have to answer 50 questions, and you need to get 43 right to pass the test. You have 57 minutes to do it.

You can review your answers at the end of the test, and then take a second practice test.

You can’t practise the hazard perception test using this service.
