  • Motorbike Theory Test

    In order to be able to ride a motorcycle you must have passed a theory test and a practical driving test.
    Any rider wishing to take a motorcycle test must take a Theory Test first, and the certificate lasts for 2 years. Since 14 November 2002 the driving theory test changed. As well as answering 50 multiple choice questions, you are also tested for hazard perception skills. You will need to pass both parts of the test at the same sitting to pass your theory test.
    What is the multiple choice part of the test?

    This part consists of 50 multiple choice questions covering a wide range of driving topics. By touching the screen, you select an answer, or answers, from the selection shown. To pass you must answer 43 or more questions correctly in 57 minutes. You have the option of working through a practice session lasting up to 15 minutes to get used to the system before starting the actual test.

    To practice please visit www.dsa.gov.uk
    How does the hazard perception part work?

    After a break of up to three minutes, the hazard perception part will start. You will be shown a tutorial video first. This uses sample footage with a sound track (headphones supplied), which will explain how to complete this part of the test. You may repeat the tutorial once more if you wish.

    The test consists of 14 video clips, each lasting about one minute. The clips feature various types of hazards, such as vehicles, pedestrians and road conditions. You should respond by pressing a mouse button as soon as you see a hazard developing that may result in the driver having to take some action, such as changing speed or direction. The earlier the developing hazard is spotted, and a response made, the higher the score.

    Candidates can score up to five marks on each hazard and the test contains 15 scoreable hazards. The pass mark for this part of the test is 44 out of 75 for motorcycle riders.
    Preparing for the theory test.

    To help prepare for the theory test, we recommend the The Highway Code, relevant books from the Essential Skills series and Know Your Traffic Signs. The official theory test books and CD-Roms contain the multiple choice questions. The CD-Roms show screens similar to those used in the multiple choice part of the test.

    There is also a video and booklet package called Road Sense, which is the official guide to hazard perception for all drivers and riders.
