Theory Test Changes 2020
Currently, you have to read a case study and then answer 5 questions about it.
This tests your knowledge and understanding of road rules.
This will change if you take your test from 14 April 2020. You’ll watch one video clip instead of reading a case study, and answer 3 questions about it.
You’ll still need to study the same books and software to prepare for your theory test.
You’ll still need to:
- answer 50 multiple-choice questions within 57 minutes
- get 43 out of the 50 questions right to pass the multiple-choice part of the test
The hazard perception part of the test is not changing. This is where you watch video clips to spot developing hazards.
The change will make the theory test more accessible, especially to people with a:
- reading difficulty (like dyslexia)
- learning disability
- developmental condition (like autism)
The change only applies to car theory tests to begin with.
