The Theory Test

The Theory Test

The motorcycle theory test can be booked on 0300 200 1122.


The theory test is in a multiple choice format. For each question there will be several possible answers and you need to pick the correct one, however some questions may require more than one answer. On the test you can move between questions and ‘flag’ questions that you may want to come back to later in the test. They will ask you 50 questions from a choice of over 1000. The pass mark for this test is to get at least 43 of the 50 question correct. The amount of time allowed for this test is 57 minutes.


Once part one is completed you will then move onto the hazard perception test but before this you will be allowed up to 3 minutes break.

Before you start the hazard perception part, you’ll be shown a short video clip about it works. You will then be shown a series of video clips on a computer screen.

The clips:

A*feature everyday road scenes.

B*contain at least one developing hazard – but one of the clips will feature two developing hazards.

A developing hazard is something that may result in you having to take some action, such as changing speed or direction.

The earlier you notice a developing hazard and make a response, the higher you will score. The most you can score for each developing hazard is five points.

To get a high score you need to:

A*respond to the developing hazard during the early part of its development.

B*press the mouse button as soon as you see a hazard developing.

You won’t be able to review your answers to the hazard perception test. Also if you click continuously or in a pattern during a clip a message will appear at the end. It will tell you that you have scored zero for that particular clip.

The total marks for the hazard perception test is 75 and you will need to get at least 44 out of the 75 to pass.
