You are not required to have passed your theory test before starting your driving lessons. However, you do need to have passed your theory test before you can book a practical driving test.
All udrive instructors can support you with your revision if required to help you pass first time. As an extra saving and a perk of taking driving lessons with udrive, we offer Free theory software. This can be accessed via your driving instructors profile page.
The Theory Test consists of 50 multiple choice questions; you have 57 minutes to complete the questions. You need to get 43 correct out of the 50 questions. There are 14 different areas to learn, below are examples of four areas you could be quizzed on:
Road Traffic signs
Safety of your vehicle
After the Multiple Questions test there will be a few minutes break and the second part of the theory test, the Hazard Perception Test will begin.
There is no time limit on the Hazard Perception Test. It consists of 14 video clips of vehicles driving down various roads in different traffic and weather conditions. You have to spot the developing hazards by clicking the mouse button, if you are correct you score points. The more accurate you are the more points you score. You need to score 44 points out of a possible 75. Be careful not to over click as this could lead you to fail. If you are struggling with any aspect of the theory, please talk to your instructor.
