Theory questions

 

 

The first part of your theory test, the multiple choice test has a maximum possible score of 50. In order to get a pass rate you need to get a score of 43 or higher. The pass mark for this section is 86%.

 

[Note] both parts of the theory/hazard perception test must be passed in the same sitting.

 

This section of the test requires a good knowledge of the highway code and should not be underestimated.

 

A copy of Driving the essential skills is an extremly valuable resorse along with an upto date cd/app or dvd.

 

It is also in my oppinion extremly useful to begin driving lessons before the theory test is attempted. Practical driving experience on the open road will greatly improve your understanding of life on the public highway, including amongst other subjects.
