Theory Test

Theory test lab

A theory and hazard perception will have to be taken and passed to take A1, A2 and A licence’s

If you are upgrading a licence, you don’t need to retake your theory test. Although if you’re doing an upgrade before 2 years, you will need a valid theory pass certificate.

The theory test is made up of a multiple-choice part and a hazard perception part. You need to pass both parts to pass the theory test.

The multiple-choice part

Before the test starts you’ll be given instructions on how it works.

You can choose to do a practice session of multiple-choice questions to get used to the layout of the test. At the end of the practice session the real test will begin.

A question and several possible answers will appear on a computer screen - you have to select the correct answer.

You can move between questions and ‘flag’ questions that you want to come back to later in the test.

The hazard perception part

You’ll be shown a series of 14 video clips on a computer screen. The clips:

  • feature everyday road scenes
  • contain at least one ‘developing hazard’ - but one of the clips will feature 2 ‘developing hazards’

Cost: £23.00

Module 1 Test Diagram

Module 1: off-road manoeuvres

Module 1 is the off-road module and normally takes about 20 minutes.

It includes:

  • wheeling the moped or motorcycle and using the stand
  • riding a slalom and figure of 8
  • a slow ride
  • a U-turn
  • cornering and controlled stop
  • cornering and the emergency stop
  • cornering and hazard avoidance

There is a minimum speed for the hazard avoidance and emergency stop exercises:

  • for mopeds this is around 19mph
  • for motorcycles this is around 31mph

Cost: £15.50

On road training

Module 2: on-road riding

Module 2 is the on-road module and normally takes about 40 minutes.

You must bring your module 1 pass certificate to module 2, plus all the documents you had to bring to the module 1 test.

What happens during module 2
The eyesight test

You’ll have to correctly read a number plate on a parked vehicle.

The vehicle will be at least 20 metres away if it has a new-style number plate, and 20.5 metres away if it has an old-style number plate.

You’ll fail your test if you can’t pass the eyesight test. The test won’t continue.

Vehicle safety questions

You’ll be asked some safety questions from a set list by your examiner.

Road riding

You’ll ride in a variety of road and traffic conditions. You’ll be asked to carry out:

  • normal stops
  • an angle start (pulling out from behind a parked vehicle)
  • a hill start (where possible)

The examiner will give you directions using a radio. They will normally follow you on a motorcycle.

Independent riding

You’ll have about 10 minutes of independent riding. This is designed to assess your ability to ride safely while making your own decisions.

At the end of module 2

At the end of module 2, the examiner will give you the result and feedback. If you pass, the examiner will explain to you how to change your provisional licence into a full licence.

Cost: £75.00 (weekday) or £88.50 (evening, weekends or bank holidays)
