How to book your theory test

Booking your theory test is easy. All you need is your provisional driving licence number, an email address, a valid credit/debit card, and a mobile device.

The Theory Test is designed to help you determine whether you're ready for the practical test.

There are two parts to this test. Part 1 is a multiple-choice question test. Part 2 is a hazard perception test. Each part consists of 50 questions. Questions are continuously updated so they reflect current law.

There are 45 multiple choice questions. Each question has 4 possible answers. Some questions require more than one answer. For each question, you must choose the correct answer from among four choices. You may skip any question you wish. At the end of the test, you'll be given 60 seconds to complete the test. Your score is calculated by adding together the number of points earned for each question answered correctly. You can take the test again until you get at least 50% of the total points available.

Drivers should pay attention to what's happening around them while driving. They need to know how to spot developing hazards before they become an actual problem. Drivers must watch videos showing hazards developing in order to improve their ability to spot these dangers. There are two types of hazards in each video clip: 1) things that could happen if drivers don't change their speeds or directions (e.g., pedestrians crossing the street), and 2) things that could happen when drivers do change their speeds or directions. In each case, there is a warning sign that appears right before the hazard occurs. Drivers must identify the warning signs as soon as possible.

Hazard detection is a game about finding hidden objects. Your goal is to detect the hazards before they become too big or dangerous. To do this, you must be quick to notice any changes in the environment.

You must answer questions correctly before time runs out. You can only use the mouse to respond to the question. There is no undo button.

When does the theory test start?

You have 57 minutes to complete your driving theory exam. Some people take less time than this. Hazard perception tests take 20 minutes. You may have a three minute break after submitting the first section.

Hazard perception tests make the road safer. In 2014, the introduction of the hazard perceptions test could have contributed to a 11% reduction in crashes. This means that there were fewer accidents, and less damage caused by them.

Test tips for theory tests

You need to be careful about what you write down. Make sure you answer questions correctly. Don't rely on the teacher to tell you when to take an exam. Study for the test yourself. Bring the right materials on the day.
