Fiveways Driving School - The Theory Test
The theory test is made up of two parts taken via a computer at a theory test centre local to you. The first part is a multiple choice test. There are 50 questions asked (one at a time) and forty three of these must be answered correctly in order to pass this part of the test.
The questions include a case study on which five questions will be based. The case study will involve a real life situation that a driver could face whilst driving and aims to test your understanding of road safety issues and not simply your knowledge of it.
You answer by touching the screen over the correct answer. The questions are based on the Highway Code and other road safety matters. You may return to any of the questions and change any answers you wish to in the 57mins time scale you are allotted for this part of the theory test.
You can book online at the DSA Online Booking Service or phone 0300 200 1122. Have your licence number and credit card details with you. If you do not have a credit/debit card you can apply by post with an application form obtained from your local theory or practical test centre.
Hazard Perception Test
The hazard perception test is a computer based test. You will be presented with a series of 14 video clips which feature every day road scenes. In each clip there will be at least one developing hazard, but one of the clips will feature two developing hazards. To achieve a high score you will need to respond to the developing hazard during the early part of its development. You identify the hazard my clicking a the mouse. The maximum you can score on each hazard is five. You will not be able to review your answers to the hazard perception test; as on the road, you will only have one chance to respond to the developing hazard.
The pass mark is 44 out of 75. You must pass both parts of the theory test in order to pass the test as a whole.
