The Theory Test
The theory test is divided into two parts:
A multiple choice test of 50 questions covering all aspects of the Highway Code. The pass mark is 43.
A hazard perception test consisting of a series of video clips of actual road hazards that need to be identified. The pass mark is 44.

The Practical Test
Your driving test will start with an eyesight check from 20 metres and a “Tell Me” vehicle safety question.
The driving part of your test will last around 40 minutes. Throughout the test your examiner will be looking for an overall safe standard of driving, including when you are carrying out the set exercises.
During the drive you will carry out one reversing manoeuvre, a “Show Me” question and maybe an emergency stop. The driving test will also include a section of independent driving, following road signs or using a SatNav.
You can make up to 15 driving faults and still pass the test (16 or more results in failure). However, if you commit one serious or dangerous fault you will fail the test.
