The Driving Test

The UK driving test is split into two parts.

First is the Theory & Hazard Perception Test followed by the Practical Driving Test.

You must have passed the theory test part before you are allowed to book, or attempt to take, a practical test.
The Theory Test
This is divided into 2 sections each of which is completed using a PC with touch sensitive screen and a mouse.
Part 1
Is a multiple choice question and answer section which consists of 50 questions with a 57 minute time limit. The pass mark for the multiple choice part of the theory test is not less than 43 out of 50 questions answered correctly.
Part 2
Is the Hazard perception test, 14 video clips each of which contains at least 1 hazard (one of them will contain 2). You must identify and mark the hazard on the screen as you identify it. To score good marks here you must identify the hazard early and then indicate its' development. The pass mark for the car and motorcycle hazard perception part of the theory test is 44 out of 75.

But!!  what's next ?
What should come next is PASSPLUS training. Reduce your risk of accident in your early days of driving and help get a decent insurance discount. I will provide not only the training but also help in finding a better insurance quote and because I confirm your competance there is no further test after a Pass Plus course.
