"HELP, My Driving Theory Test Is This Week!"

So, your Theory Test is this week and you’ve left it to the last minute to prepare; probably because you’ve got more interesting things to do…

Don’t panic, we’ll get through this together. Here’s a quick look at everything you’ll need to know and do to pass your Theory Test!


Theory Test Revision Tips

Follow our revision tips below to help you get through the test, but remember that you'll find it much easier if you use our 4 in 1 app!

  • Make sure you have seen all the questions. There are 773 in the entire DVSA revision bank to answer!
  • If you are using our 4 in 1 app, use the 'Settings' to select 'questions not yet seen', and 'questions previously answered incorrectly' to make sure you're answering every question.
  • Make sure you recap the hardest topics such as stopping distances, reflective studs, essential documents, emergency vehicles and safety in your vehicle.
  • Make sure you're passing at least 5 Mock Tests consecutively and have at least 5 minutes to spare at the end of each one.
  • Make sure you are flagging any difficult questions and revisit them at the end. 
  • Read each question carefully, then read the answer choices, and then read the question again to ensure you answer correctly! We advise you spend around 1 minute per question.

What do I need to take to the Theory Test with me?

You’ll need your UK provisional driving licence with you to be allowed to take the test. So, make sure you know where it is as a new one can take up to 15 days to arrive!

If you’ve lost it, here’s where you can get a new driving licence and here’s where you can rearrange your Theory Test (you must give at least 3 clear working days’ notice).

You can’t take any personal items into the test room with you. Here’s what you can’t take in with you.

  • Mobile phones
  • Earphones
  • Watches
  • Bags

What’s in the test?

There are two parts to your 2019 Theory Test:

Multiple-choice questions – 57 minutes long, 50 questions, and you need 43 correct answers to pass.

Hazard Perception – 14 x 1-minute videos - you need 44 points out of 75 to pass.

You’ll need to pass both parts of the Theory Test to get your hands on that lucrative certificate!

The multiple-choice part of the exam is straightforward; simply get 43 of the 50 questions correct to pass. Some of the questions are case study questions, which will be about a real life situation you could come across when driving.

The Hazard Perception is the more interactive part of the test; in this section, you’ll have to watch 14 one-minute clips which feature at least one developing hazard.

The DVSA want to keep you on your toes by featuring two developing hazards in one of the videos, so watch out for that one.

You need to click the mouse whenever you see a hazard developing. Each hazard carries a maximum score of five, and you’ll gain more points for spotting hazards earlier!
