As well as passing the hazard perception test, you will also need to pass the theory test's multiple choice questions part to be able to go for the practical exam. The test consists of 50 questions which have to be answered in 57 minutes and you need to score 43 out of 50 to pass. Therefore it is necessary to practice a mock theory test before you go for the real one.

As from 28 September 2009, there will be some case studies added to the actual theory test. They are about real life scenarios and you will have multiple choice answers to choose from. When taking the test, you have the option to flag any answers you are unsure about so that you can return to them at the end to make a final call before submitting the answer. As this is the first part of the theory test, you will have an option to take a break of upto 3 minutes before the test resumes for the hazard perception part. When you have finished the test, the test centre staff will print out your certificate if you have passed.
