Theory & Hazard Perception Test:

You can study for the theory and hazard perception test whilst learning to drive or even before, however we advise you to study the theory whilst learning to drive and your instructor here at Coles Driving Academy will be able to help you with this as you will understand the theory and practical links. The theory & hazard perception tests are separate tests but will be taken together, the theory first then the hazard perception following after.

The theory test consists of 50 multiple-choice questions, it is computer based and you select your answers by touching the screen or by clicking the mouse button. You have 57 minutes to complete the test and you have to obtain 43 correct answers to pass this part.

The Hazard perception test is again carried out on a computer and the test will start after three minutes of completing the theory test. The test will contain 14 video clips each lasting about one minute. Each clip contains one or more various hazards and you have to respond to them by pressing the mouse button as soon as you see the hazard developing. There are 15 score able hazards in total. The earlier you respond the higher your score. A total of 75 points are available and you have to score at least 44 to pass, this pass mark is for the learner test only, the pass mark increases for different tests.

Before you go to the test centre to sit your DVSA theory test ensure that you have the correct documents, if not you could be turned away! to see what documents to take click here

If you are a learner driver you must take and pass your theory test before you book your practical test. If you already have a driving licence you might not have to take another theory test if you want to start driving a different vehicle again click here for how to check
