Theory Test


At TDN SOM we give our pupils all the advice and encouragement they need to help them to pass the driving theory test.

The driving theory test is in two parts - a question part and a hazard perception part. Both parts have to be passed at the same time. The theory test must be passed before you can apply for the practical driving test and is carried out at a dedicated theory test centre.


The first part of the theory test involves 50 multiple choice questions on a touch screen computer. The pass mark is 43 out of 50. You can learn for the theory test using recommended resources such as books and dvd's and the Highway Code. Some multiple choice questions will be presented in the form of a Case Study where questions will be asked on a video clip.

Hazard Perception (HPT)

When you've completed the questions, there will be a short delay and then the Hazard perception test will start. The test consists of 14 clips of film each lasting around 30 or 40 seconds. In total there are 15 "developing hazards" that you will need to identify. The sooner you identify the scoring hazards, the higher your score. There is a maximum of 5 points per scoring hazard. You just need to click the mouse, not move the mouse cursor over the hazard.

The pass mark is 44 out of 75.

Once you have passed the theory test, arrangements can be sorted regarding the practical test.
