Driving Theory Test

Throughout your driving lessons with Steve Pearce Driving School of Shrewsbury, you will experience professional instruction and guidance preparing you for both your Practical and Theory Tests. Our local students have the opportunity to take their driver training Theory Test at Shrewsbury.
Steve Pearce Driving School will prepare you for your driver Theory Test, guiding you through all elements of the test including the Highway Code and Hazard Perception. Full guidance will also be offered so that you can benefit from the vast resources that are available to help you with your Theory Test. Students will be taught how to deal with the new rules in the safest possible manner.

Your Driving Theory Test is divided into two parts - Multiple-choice Questions and Harzard Perception. You will need to pass both parts in order to move onto the Practical Test. If you pass just one part you will need to take both parts of the Theory Test again.

Multiple Choice Section

Choices of answers are provided on screen for you to answer using a simple touch screen process; some questions may require more than one answer. There are 50 questions; you have 57 minutes in which to answer them. You will need to answer 43 correctly out of 50 in order to pass the test.

Hazard Perception Test

You are provided with a series of video clips in which you have to show that you have seen a hazard as it develops, for a higher score you will need to indicate early perception by the click of a mouse. In order to pass the Hazard Perception test you will need to score 44 out of 75.

You can practice for the Theory Test on-line using the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency website. If you do not have access to a computer you can use a laptop provided by Steve Pearce Driving School during lesson time.
