Driving Theory Test Changes

From today (28th September 2009) there is a change to the theory test. The Hazard Perception Test will remain the same. The new test will include 45 multiple choice questions and an additional set of five questions concerned with depicted “case study.”

The candidate will be presented with a set of facts – the case study – which will appear on the left hand side of the screen. The set of facts will be set in text format, and may be accompanied by supporting picture or diagram.

Throughout the case study the fact and the scenario content does not change. This way the scenario may be re-read as often as the candidate chooses.

The questions will appear on the right hand side of the screen, and the candidate will be asked to make a response in the usual manner. 

Simon Bush of Britannia Driving School said: “All the information concerning the new format of the test may be found in the DSA publication The Official DSA Theory Test for Car Drivers and The Official Highway Code, available from Britannia Driving Schools Merchandise Store.”
