Theory Test

The theory test for car drivers was introduced in July 1996. It was designed to improve road safety. Included in the test is driver's attitude, traffic signs and regulations, the effects of alcohol, drugs and fatigue on driver's behavior, the safety and environmental aspects of vehicles. From 14th November 2002 the Hazard Perception test was introduced.

The DSA's theory test for car drivers consists of 50 multiple choice questions. Associated with each question is a list of potential answers. You need to select the correct answer, or answers, by touching the appropriate area of the computer screen. Please see below for details. You will be given 57 minutes to complete the test. To pass you need to correctly answer 43 out of the 50 questions. Once you have completed this part of the test you will have around a 3 minute break, after which you will start your hazard perception test. The hazard part of the theory test requires you to view 14 hazard video clips on the computer screen, each lasting approximately one minute each. You are required to watch these clips as if you were the driver.

There will be 15 hazards to find - at least one for each clip. However, one clip will have 2 hazards. You click either the left or right mouse button whenever you think you can see a hazard developing.
