Theory and practical test information.
The driving theory test must be taken before you apply for the practical driving test.
The theory test is split into 2 phases; phase 1 is the multiple choice questions and phase 2 is hazard perception. You must pass both sections to pass the whole test
The multiple choice questions are presented on a touch screen computer, you will be asked 50 questions in 57 minutes and must achieve 43 to pass.
To achieve the highest score you must respond to the hazard as it is developing, the earlier you spot the developing hazard, the higher the mark you will get, the maximum mark is 5 for each clip. You need to get 44 out of 75 possible points.

The practical test is taken on the road, with the examiner directing you around a pre-determined route. The examiner marks you for driving faults, serious faults, and dangerous faults. A candidate will fail the test if he or she accumulates any serious or dangerous faults, or more than fifteen driving faults. If you accumulate several driving faults in the same category, the examiner may consider the fault habitual and mark a serious fault in that category. The test usually lasts 38 to 40 minutes in a standard test, or approximately 70 minutes when the candidate is taking an extended test after having their license revoked.
Before getting to the car, the examiner will ask you to read a car's number plate at a distance of 20.5 metres. If you need glasses to do this then these must be the ones worn whilst completing the rest of the test. If you cannot correctly read the second number plate, then the examiner must use a tape measure to measure the correct distance between the candidate and a third number plate. If you cannot read the third number plate, then the candidate is deemed to have failed and the test will not continue.
