Multiple-choice questions

You have 57 minutes to answer 50 multiple-choice questions.

Before the test starts you’ll get:

  • instructions on how the test works

How the test works

A question and several possible answers appear on a screen. You have to select the right answer.

If your test is before 28 September 2020

Some questions are given as a case study. The case study will:

  • show a short story that 5 questions will be based on
  • be about a real life situation you could come across when driving

If your test is on or after 28 September 2020

Three of the questions are about a short video. It will show a normal driving situation, such as:

  • driving through a town centre
  • driving on a country road

The video is silent. You can watch it as many times as you like during the test.

You can ‘flag’ questions that you want to come back to later.

Changing your answers

You can go back to any question to review and change your answer at any point.
