Theory Tests:

The Theory test is made up of two parts; the multiple choice part and the hazard perception part. Both tests are taken on a computer at your local theory test centre in either Bristol or Bath using the mouse and a touch screen monitor to answer. You will need to correctly answer 43 out of 50 questions to pass the multiple choice test and score at least 44 out of a possible 75 in the hazard perception test. You need to pass both tests at the same time to successfully pass the theory test.

Practical Test:

The Practical test lasts for approximately 40 minutes, in which time you will take an eyesight test, answer two vehicle safety check questions (can be found on my links page) and drive for at least 30 minutes. During the test you will carry out one of the following reversing exercises: reverse around a corner, turn in the road, reverse around a parked car or reverse in to a marked bay. You may also be asked to carry out an emergency stop, the emergency stop is carried out on approximately 1 in every 3 tests. You may make up to 15 driving faults (16 is a fail), but if you commit just one serious or dangerous fault you will fail the test. Also if you commit the same driving fault numerous times, this could also result in a serious fault. I only use the new Multi Purpose Test Centre built in 2008 which has taken over from St George Test Centre and is based in Station Road near Kingswood. I do not cover tests from Brislington or Southmead Test Centre.
