Driving Test Information
A driving test (also known as a driving exam, driver’s test, or road test) is a procedure designed to test a person’s ability to drive a motor vehicle. It exists in various forms worldwide, and is a requirement to pass in order to obtain a driver’s license. A driving test generally consists of one or two parts: the practical test, called a road test, used to assess a person’s driving ability under normal operating conditions, and/or a written or oral test (theory test) to confirm a person’s knowledge of driving and relevant rules and laws.
The United Kingdom and some other countries use a Hazard Perception Test as part of the theory test, in which candidates are shown multiple short video clips of driving scenarios and must respond to any emerging hazards.
There is also now an independent driving section of the test that this video shows:
