There are a total of 50 questions that you’ll be asked on the 2020 theory test. Each question is multiple choice where you’ll use a mouse to click in a box to select your answer. Some questions will require more than one answer. A message will display if you don’t select enough answers.
Previously what was included in the 50 questions were ‘case studies’. Case studies are essentially stories that are shown to you and when the case study has finished, you’ll be required to answer 5 questions about it.
These case study questions have now been replaced by a video clip, where you’ll be required to answer 3 multiple choice questions about it. There will still be a total of 50 multiple choice questions to answer.
During the theory test, if you’re unsure about one of the questions, some people prefer to come back to it later to spend more time thinking about it. You can do this by clicking the ‘Flag’ button.
To ensure you know what to do in the test, you’ll be given a 15 minute practice session before the multiple choice section of the theory test begins.
When you have finished the 50 questions in the multiple choice part of the test, you can either take a three minute break, or go straight into the hazard perception part of the theory test.
