Introducing planned changes to the car theory test

DVSA will introduce the planned changes to the car theory test on Monday 28 September 2020.

What are the changes

The updated part of the test will make it more realistic and improve the accessibility for all candidates.

Video clip scenarios will replace the written case study within the multiple choice part of the current theory test. Candidates will be asked 3 questions based on the short video clip.

Candidates will still:

  • be asked 50 multiple-choice questions in total
  • need to get the same pass mark
  • be tested on the same content

The training centres at 5Day will introduce new classroom training material in the week before the change. Pupils will be shown how the new test will work and will be given examples. The 5Day centre theory training instructor is always on hand if you have any questions.
