The Theory Test
Before you can apply for the driving test, you will need to pass the theory test.
We recommend you apply and start preparing for your theory test as soon as you can, because this gives you the option of being able to apply for the driving test when ever you want. The waiting list for the theory test is about two weeks which is nothing compared to the driving test which is about 6 to 8 weeks.
The theory test consists of a multiple choice part and a hazard perception part.
The multiple choice part has 50 questions of which at least 43 must be answered correctly within 57 minutes. Then for the hazard perception part you will watch a series of 14 one minute clips showing real life road situations and you have to be able to identify the hazards in the clip. More information can be found on the DVSA website.
