The test is split into 2 sections. The first part is 50 questions on highway code subjects with multiple choice answers. The pass mark is 43. From 28th September 2009 case studies are included as well. This involves reading a statement then answering questions related to it.

The second part is called hazard perception. Here you are shown 14 video clips from the driver’s view of a moving car. You are required to recognise, by clicking the mouse button at the correct time to gain maximum points, situations which either are or could develop into a hazard. To pass this section you need a minimum of 44 points out of a possible 75.

Unfortunately, if you are unsuccessful on either of the two sections you will need to re-sit both again.

Practical Test

Before you start the driving ability part of your test

Before you start the driving ability part of your test, you’ll have an eyesight check and be asked two vehicle safety questions.

The eyesight check

The examiner will ask you to read the number plate on a parked vehicle to test your eyesight. If you fail the check, your driving test won’t continue. You can find out how the eyesight check works by clicking on the link below.

Vehicle safety questions: ‘show me, tell me’

You’ll be asked two vehicle safety questions. These are also known as the ‘show me, tell me’ questions.

The examiner will ask you one ‘show me’ question, where you’ll have to show them how you’d carry out a vehicle safety check. You’ll also be asked one ‘tell me’ question, where you’ll have to explain to the examiner how you’d carry out the check.

For example, the examiner might ask you to identify where the windscreen washer reservoir is and tell them how you’d check the windscreen washer level.

If you give the wrong answer for one or both questions, you’ll be marked with one driving fault.
