Theory Test

1,The Theory test consists of 50 multiple choice questions covering the Highway Code.

2,The second element is the Hazard Perception Test (HPT)

The hazard perception test consists of 14 movie clips which are approximately 1 minute long. One of the clips has 2 developing hazards that you are required to spot. So for this section you are required to spot 15 developing hazards in 14 movie clips. The test requires you to spot the hazards in the clips by clicking on the mouse button as soon as you see a hazard developing. The earlier you spot the hazard developing the higher your score will be. If you click the mouse as soon as you see the hazard developing you will get the maximum of 5 points for that hazard. A hazard is anything that could cause you as the driver, to change your speed or direction. The pass mark for this section is 44 out of 75
