We're happy to arrange theory tests for you when you visit us for an assessment lesson and for companies through our Premium Service. Or click here to go to the DSA website to arrange yourself.
We recommend passing both Multiple Choice and Hazard Perception before arranging an intensive training course.
Drivers without C1 on their licence already also need to pass Driver CPC Case Study Theory as one of the tests to gain a Driver Qualification Card. This test can be arranged after passing the driving test if preferred.
Booking Theory Tests
Give all your details, separately, every time, for each test you are arranging. Start with booking a Multiple Choice Test as this usually has the longest waiting period. To have the Hazard Perception test on the same day as your Multiple Choice, use the Advance Search to find a test time that falls either before or after your Multiple Choice test which lasts 115 minutes. The Hazard Perception lasts 90 minutes.
We recommend sitting the Driver CPC Case Study test after you've completed driver training as during our practical training you'll gain an insight to being a working driver and therefore you'll find it easier to pass the Case Study test.
(When arranging your Driver CPC Case Study test, which lasts around 90 minutes, unless you've previously taken a PCV Case Study test, do not choose the Conversion Test option)
What to expect at the test centre
MULTIPLE CHOICE TEST: Before the test starts you'll be given instructions on how the test works. You can also choose to take a practice session to get used to the layout of the test. At the end of the practice session the real test begins.
A question and several answer options will appear on the screen. To select the correct answer to the question, simply touch the screen. Some questions may require more than one answer. Navigate between questions and 'flag' questions that you want to come back to later in the test. For LGV, you must answer 85 questions out of 100 correctly to pass.
HAZARD PERCEPTION TEST: There are no separate versions; the clips are the same for car, bike, bus or lorry tests. You will see 19 video clips showing every day road scenes and in each clip there'll be at least one developing hazard. To get a high score, you need to ‘click’ with your computer mouse to acknowledge that you've seen the developing hazard during the early part of its development. The maximum you can score on each hazard is five. You won't be able to review your answers to the hazard perception test; because, as on the road, you'll only have one chance to respond. To pass you must get 67 out of 100.
DRIVER CPC CASE STUDY: Similar format to the multiple choice test with case studies based on real-life situations that drivers are likely to come across in a drivers working life. Examples could be driving a vehicle in icy conditions, or being asked to carry out non-driving work when you're due to take weekly or daily rest. The aim is to test your knowledge, and how you put it into practice. Each Case Study will have between 6 to 8 questions which will be multiple choice or multiple response, hot spot questions or simple text answers. There is a possible maximum score of 50. The pass mark for LGV test is currently 38.
Drivers who already hold a Driver CPC for one category of vehicle (ie PCV or LGV) and wish to obtain a Driver CPC for the other category, will need to take a part two case study conversion test consisting of 10 case studies with a total of 50 questions.
