The test is made up of 2 parts - multiple choice and hazard perception. You have to book both parts separately, but you can take them on the same day. It does not matter which one you take first but you need to pass both within 2 years of each other to get your theory test certificate.
We would also suggest you book the Module 2 CPC as well if you are looking to drive commercially.
The multiple-choice questions in the theory test are based on 3 books:
The Highway Code, Know your traffic signs and The Official DVSA Guide to Driving Goods Vehicles. Study these to learn the rules and skills you’ll be tested on.
You have 1 hour and 55 minutes to answer 100 multiple-choice questions.
A question and several possible answers appear on a screen. You have to select the right answer. The pass mark for this part is 85 out of 100 questions.
Hazard perception test
Before you start the hazard perception test, you’ll be shown a video about how it works.
You’ll then watch 19 video clips. The clips:feature everyday road scenes contain at least one ‘developing hazard’ - but one of the clips features 2 developing hazards
You get points for spotting the developing hazards as soon as they start to happen.
The pass mark for this part is 67 out of 100.
Module 2 CPC Case Study
How the test works
The test is made up of 7 case studies you work through on a computer. The case studies are short stories based on situations that you’re likely to come across in your working life.
You’ll be asked between 6 and 8 multiple-choice questions on each case study.
The test lasts for 1 hour and 15 minutes, and the pass mark is 40 out of 50.
