The Theory Test
The first step to obtaining your full driver’s license is to pass the Theory Test. This must be passed before you can book your practical test, so most instructors will advise you to start working towards it as soon as possible.
The Theory test is split up into two parts- multiple choice questions and hazard perception. Both parts of the test must obtain a pass mark for you to pass the entire test. If you pass one part but not the other, you must re-sit the test! The Theory test can be sat as many times as possible.

MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS
The first part of the Theory test is computer based, touch screen test that consists of 50 multiple choice questions. In order to pass, you must get at least 43 of these questions correct. You have a maximum of 57 minutes to complete the test, but you are able to finish before this time if you want to. Before you start the theory test, you are able to partake in a 15 minute practice session. All questions in the Theory test are based on the Highway Code and other road safety matters.
The second part of the Theory test is hazard perception. Here, you will be shown 14 video clips, each one about a minute long. The videos feature multiple different types of hazards, for example vehicles, pedestrians and animals.
Within the fourteen video clips there are fifteen hazards to spot. 13 of the video clips contain just one hazard, but one of them contains two. You could score up to five points for each correctly spotted hazard, depending on how early you realise. The pass mark for hazard perception sits at 44 out of 75.
THE HIGHWAY CODE
This version has been adapted for online use from the Department for Transport’s current printed version of the Highway Code. In any proceedings, whether civil or criminal, only the Department for Transport’s current printed version of the Code should be relied upon.
Theory Test Pro
The Theory Test Pro is a great platform which enables you to practice your theory test continuously online, ensuring that when the time comes for the real test, you will be well informed, ready to go and (hopefully!) pass your test first time.
The Theory Test Pro allows you to access multiple choice questions and hazard perception tests. It is a highly realistic online simulation of the real UK theory test. Theory Test Pro contains all official test questions which are licensed from the DSA.
Those who are first time Theory Test Pro users will have to create their own log in to get started. Once this has done, you are able to have unlimited access to all official questions from the DSA in the same format as the actual exam. Theory Test Pro also has an online version of the Highway Code available and realistic hazard perception video simulations.
Theory Test Pro can translate into over 40 different languages and offers speech-enabled tests for those who would prefer to listen to the questions.

Pass your test with A Class Driving School ltd.
The practical driving test is the second part of your driving test, after you have completed and passed your theory.
This test starts with an eyesight test. You must be able to read a new style registration plate at a distance of 20 metres. If you are unable to do this, your test will automatically be terminated and your fee will be lost.
Next you will be asked to answer to Show Me, Tell Me questions. If you fail to answer these questions correctly, you will receive a minor fault for each incorrect answer given.
Next comes the driving. You will be examined on your general driving and on two of three reversing manoeuvres of which you have been taught by your driving instructor. You may also be asked to carry out an emergency stop exercise.
A standard driving test takes approximately 40 minutes in total, during which you can get up to 15 minor driving faults. If you obtain more than this, or too many in one category, your driving test attempt will be unsuccessful.
If you receive any serious or dangerous faults, this will result in failure.
As of October 2010, a new ‘Independent Driving’ section was added as part of the practical test. For this, you are required to follow signs to a specific location. This allows the examiner to see how well you deal without directions.
