How good is your Highway Code knowledge?

In a recent survey conducted by Castrol Oils and reported this article in The Daily Mail, many of us are confused by everyday signs on the road. This is disturbing because ignoring these signs could be the difference between having an accident or not.

Test Fees

 

Theory Test   £23 (Please do not pay more than £23)

 pound sign

 

Practical Test Module 1   £15.50

Practical Test Module 2   £75

 

Please note, these as the test fees that are payable to the DVSA. In addition, lesson fees will be payable on test day.

If you are taking your test on your own bike, you could take yourself for test and pay just the relevant test fee only. Obviously, you will not be able to ride to the test centre on your own bike unless it is the A1 Licence (125cc)

There is more to pay for extended tests and practical motorcycle tests conducted at weekends and Bank Holidays, when the DVSA care to do them.

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 www.dsa.gov.uk 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.
