You’ll get a letter with a pass certificate number at the test centre. You need this when you book and take your driving test.
You must book and take the full test again, even if you passed one part this time.
Both the Theory test and hazard perception test need to be passed together, you cannot pass one and fail the other. The Hazard perception test is is designed to test your awareness of potential hazards whilst driving in various weather conditions. Clips will be in various weather from bright sun to heavy rains, also in daytime and nighttime.
You may spot a hazard too quickly (you are looking for them after all) If you spot a hazard and click, count to 2 and click again. Remember if you click too much you will be awarded 0 points.

You do not need to pass your theory test before starting your lessons, but you will need to pass it before you can apply for the practical driving test. In fact it’s a good thing to learn for the theory while you’re taking your driving lessons, as then you can apply what you’re learning on your lessons to the theory test. I can give you all the help you need for the theory test and can recommend helpful learning materials including theory test pro (see below)
When you go to take the theory test, you get 50 multiple choice questions on a touch screen computer and you need to select the correct answer(s). The theory test pass mark is 43 out of 50. When you have completed the questions, the hazard perception test will commence.
The practice test allows you to attempt examples that are like the actual HPT. This will give you some practice on what to look out for in the test, as well as get a feel for how the test functions.
The Hazard Perception Test (HPT) is an online computerised test that measures a person’s ability to detect and respond to potentially dangerous situations on the road. Research shows the value of HPT in predicting subsequent crash risk, including some evidence that found those drivers who failed HPT at least twice were more likely to be involved in a crash compared to those who passed on their first attempt.
