Tests

Theory Test

Taking your driving theory test is a really important step in learning to drive, there are many books and online tools to help you prepare for your test.

The theory test has two parts. The first part consists of 50 multiple-choice questions, chosen at random from a bank of over 1,000. You are given 57 minutes and you must answer at least 43 of the 50 questions correctly.

Some of the questions will be part of a case study. This will take the form of a short story or scenario, on which 5 multiple choice questions will be based. The case studies focus on real life experiences and examples that you could come across while driving and will assess your understanding of driving theory while the multiple choice questions test your knowledge of the subject.

The second part is a hazard perception test, consisting of 14 one-minute video clips. In each clip, you are asked to identify potential hazards to you as a driver in real time. Each clip contains at least one hazard.
There are a total of 15 hazards in the 14 video clips and depending on how quickly you identify each, you will be given a score between 0 and 5. You will need to score at least 44 out of 75 points in order to pass the hazard perception component of the exam.

Practical Test

Your practical test is there so that your instructor can see that you have an overall safe standard of driving, including when you are carrying out the set exercises. The driving test is straightforward and has been designed to see if you:

  • Can drive safely in different road and traffic conditions
  • Know The Highway Code and can demonstrate this through your driving.
  • Can pass an eyesight check. You must be able to read a number plate from a distance of 20.5 metres.
  • Answer 2 Show Me, Tell Me questions – failure to answer either question correctly and you will score one minor fault.

The driving part of your test will last about 40 minutes during which you will be examined on your general driving and ability to reverse your vehicle safely.

One exercise will be chosen from:

  • Parallel park at the side of the road
  • Park in a bay – either driving in and reversing out, or reversing in and driving out (the examiner will tell you which you have to do)
  • Pull up on the right-hand side of the road, reverse for 2 car lengths and rejoin the traffic
  • Emergency stop exercise.

Throughout the test you should drive in the way your instructor has taught you. If you make a mistake, don’t worry about it as it might be a less serious driving fault and may not affect your result. However, if at any time your examiner considers your driving to be a danger to other road users your test will be stopped.

Your practical driving test will include approximately twenty minutes of independent driving, most candidates will be asked to follow directions from a sat nav. This is designed to assess your ability to drive safely while making decisions independently.

Amelia from Pensby

Jan has been an amazing driving instructor. She is so lovely to talk to and so calming to drive with which is very helpful as a first time driver. She was able to cater to me as a driver and help me through any areas I found difficult. I always looked forward to our lessons and I’d recommend Hotwheelz to anyone! Thank you so much Jan!x

Emma from Birkenhead

I’ve just passed my test 1st time with Jan and I am made up with the result. Jan was very supportive and calm with me throughout learning, I was very nervous at first but she made me feel at ease in the car. She made our lessons fun whilst being very attentive and helping me maintain focus. I would reccommend Jan to anyone wanting to learn to drive, couldn’t of asked for a better instructor!
