Driving Theory Test - Nuneaton Driving Lessons

Driving Theory Test From Nuneaton to Warwick

The theory test consists of two parts namely, a 50-question  multiple choice section and a Hazard Perception test. In order to pass the  multiple choice section you must answer 43 or more questions correctly within  57 minutes. Questions are chosen at random and cover a range of subjects i.e.  traffic signs and regulations, car safety and the effect of alcohol and drug  consumption whilst driving. Questions are answered by using a touch screen  computer and mouse. You may skip questions and return to them later during the  test.

Immediately after the multiple choice section, follows the video-based Hazard Perception test. You will watch a series of 14 video clips  lasting one-minute, in which you must identify 15 hazards by using the mouse to  click on the screen when you spot a potential hazard developing. You can score  up to 5 points on each hazard, depending on how quickly you identify the  potential hazard. In order to pass this element of the theory test you need to  score 44 out of 75.

To pass the theory test successfully you need to pass both the multiple choice section and Hazard Perception test at the same time before  you can apply for your practical driving test. You will have to take both parts  again, if you pass one part and fail the other. In order to practise for your  theory test, you can practise online (http://www.theory-tests.co.uk/home) or ask your  driving for a range of mock theory test papers or books that are available.

You can book your theory test  through your driving instructor, any driving or theory test centre or by  telephoning the driving test enquiry line on 0870 0101 372, between 8am and 6pm  Monday to Friday. If you are deaf and need a minicom machine telephone 0870  0106 372. If you are able to pay by credit or debit card you can book your  theory test direct on the same numbers without the need to complete an  application form.  Alternatively, you can  book online here.

When you book your theory test you will need to quote your driver number from your provisional driving licence. Upon  booking you will be given a booking number and sent an appointment letter as  confirmation within a few days.
