Being ready for your driving test is no mean feat. Your driving instructor thinks you’re ready for your licence, and it’s time to put that to the test. To make sure you don't fail any answers through nerves or a lack of preparation, here's everything you need to know about passing.
在采用实用驾驶考试之前，它会对您的规则进行测试。理论测试分为2部分 - 多项选择题和一个hazard perception test。
The test is set by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) in England, Wales and Scotland, and by the Driver and Vehicle Agency (DVA) in Northern Ireland.
所有临时许可证持有人需要通过theory test before booking a practical test. This is also the case if you're applying for a different category of licence, such as a bus or lorry licence.
Yes. If you’re a learner driver, you'll need to take the theory test before you take your practical driving test. If you don't pass your practical within 2 years, you'll need to re-take your theory test.
You'll also need to take your theory test again if you’re upgrading an existing licence to drive something else, such as a motorbike.
In light of coronavirus, can I take my theory test?
It's possible to take driving theory tests again in England, Wales and Scotland. There may be some restrictions, and you'll have to follow government guidance in the test centre to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Find out the latest theory test guidance这里, or这里if you live in Northern Ireland.
When can I do my theory test?
You can take the theory test at any time after you turn 17 (or 16 if you receive the higher rate of the mobility component of Disability Living Allowance).
How do I book my driving theory test?
If you don’t have an email address, you’ll need to book over the phone. Call0300 200 1122Monday to Friday, 8am to 4pm; or - if you live in Northern Ireland - call0345 600 6700星期一至周五，上午8点至下午12点。
Preparing for your theory test
The best way to prepare is to study - either with dedicated study guides or by taking a practice test online. The DVSA recommends a minimum of 20 hours revision to fully prepare you for your theory test.
In the multiple choice part, you’ll be tested on your knowledge of driving theory and the Highway Code. The test will cater for the type of vehicle you’re applying for a licence for. So if you’re taking the test for a motorcycle, some of the questions will be specific to motorbikes.
The test is 57 minutes long; you’ll get a little over a minute to answer each of the 50 multiple choice questions, so you have time to carefully read each question before choosing your answer.
You’ll need a minimum of 43 correct answers to pass.
这部分理论测试的最佳准备是学习the Highway Code。它不仅包括关于道路标志，标记和道路规则所需的所有安全驱动程序，它是测试中使用的问题的源材料。
我能期待什么hazard perception test?
A short tutorial video will explain this part of the test, which is computer-based. The objective is to test your awareness of potential hazards while driving.
You’ll then be shown a series of 14 videos - each roughly a minute long - depicting everyday driving scenarios. You'll have to identify the developing hazard - something that would cause the driver to take action, such as brake or change direction. This could be related to other vehicles, pedestrians or road conditions. One of the videos will have 2 developing hazards to identify.
The earlier you spot a hazard, the higher you’ll score. In both the car and motorcycle test, there are 15 scorable hazards, and you can earn up to 5 points for each. There won't be a chance to review your answers - you just get one shot at each. To pass, you need to score at least 44 of a possible 75.
If you fail either the multiple choice or hazard perception, you’ll have to re-book and take both parts of the theory test again.
You must arrive at least 30 minutes before the start of your test, and you'll need to take your provisional driving licence. Your test can be cancelled (and not refunded) if you don't bring this with you.
What special requirements are catered for?
The DVSA and DVA cater for a range of special requirements, including reading difficulties, hearing difficulties, or specific educational needs. Be sure to get in touch and let them know your requirements ahead of your theory test.
How do I get my theory test results?
完成后，您将在测试中心进行理论测试结果的打印输出。If you pass you’ll receive your pass certificate number, which you'll need when you book your practical test. You can also在gov.uk上获取您的通过证书号。
If you don’t pass, you can retake the test but you’ll need to wait at least 3 working days.
How long is the theory pass certificate valid for?
您的理论通过证书有效期为2年。不要让它过期 - 如果在此期间没有通过你的实际测试，那么您必须再次重新夺回并通过理论测试。
It won't be the news you’re hoping for but if you don't pass your theory test you’ll have the chance to take it again after 3 working days - with no limits on how many attempts you can take. You’ll get a letter at the test centre showing which parts of the test you answered incorrectly, so you can fill in your knowledge gaps.
Your driving instructor将提供尽可能多的支持，因为他们可以帮助您通过理论考试，所以学习艰难，保持酷，平静，收集，你将在你的路上直接准备好。
