Theory Test


Based on the Highway Code, the Theory Test must be taken by everyone before they can take their Practical Test. Even though you have been driving a Class I HGV since Noah launched his Ark or have recently passed a Theory Test for another class of vehicle, you must pass a Theory Test for Motorcycles. The current cost of a Theory Test is £23 and can be booked on line at or over the phone on 0300-200-1122. Please DO NOT pay more than £23 for the Theory Test.

The Theory Test consists of two parts:

Part 1... 50 multiple choice questions. You must get 43 right to pass.

Part 2... Hazard Perception element. This involves 14 video clips than contain 15 "scoreable hazards". You must score at least 44 from 75 in this element.

If well prepared, the Theory Test should hold no fears for anyone.

There are a number of books, CD-ROMs and DVDs on the market to help you pass the Theory Test. We recommend the DSA's own products that can be obtained from most large bookstores, from us, or from The Stationery Office directly.

You can practise for free via the Lancashire County Council site. Simply click on their logo.
