Frequently Asked Questions


What is a theory test ?

The theory test is a crucial part of the driving test, designed to assess your understanding of safe driving and knowledge of the rules of the road.


How is the theory test structured?

The theory test consists of two parts: a multiple-choice section with 50 questions on driving practices, and a hazard perception test using video clips to evaluate your response to hazards.


Who administers the theory test?

The theory test is administered by the DVSA (Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency), a government agency responsible for driver education and testing.


When can I take the theory test ?

You can take the theory test from the age of 17 onwards, provided you have a provisional license.


Should I take driving lessons before the theory test?

It is generally recommended to start practical driving lessons before taking the theory test, as real-world experience will help you better understand the theory test content.


Can I take the practical test before the theory test?

No, you must pass the theory test before being eligible to take the practical test. The DVSA requires you to present your theory test certificate at the practical test.

For car and motorcycle candidates, the test typically takes approximately one and a half hours, including a 15-minute optional practice session, a 57-minute multiple-choice section, a 3-minute break, and a 20-minute hazard perception test (including the introductory video).
