You will sit your test in a designated official DVSA Theory Test centre.

How is the Theory Test taken?

The Theory Test is taken on a computer at an official DVSA test centre and consists of two individual tests which must both be taken on the same day.

The first is a multiple-choice test based on the rules of the road, as set by the DVSA, and the second is a Hazard Perception Test.

What is the pass mark for the car Theory Test?

The current pass mark for learner car drivers in Great Britain and Northern Ireland is 43 or more out of 50.

For the Hazard Perception section of the test, you need to score 44 out of 75. 


The current pass rate is only 47.3%, meaning that over half of everyone who takes the Theory Test WILL FAIL!

This is why it's so important to thoroughly revise and practise!
