How easy is it to pass the theory test?

You drive every day, you know what you are doing, and you know how to behave on the roads that you use. But how well could you do in a theory test?

There are 2 parts to the test:

  • multiple-choice questions
  • hazard perception – a video test about spotting hazards on the road

You book and take them as a single test. You must pass both parts to pass the test. You’ll get the result at the test centre after taking the theory test.
