Theory test changes: 28 September 2020
Posted in: Driving Test Info.
From 28 September 2020, the car theory test will include 3 multiple-choice questions based on a short video you’ll watch.
The change will make the theory test more accessible, especially to people with a:
- reading difficulty (like dyslexia)
- learning disability
- developmental condition (like autism)
The change only applies to car theory tests to begin with.
This change was due to happen on 14 April 2020 but was postponed due to coronavirus.
How the theory test is changing to use video clips instead of written case studies
Currently, you have to read a case study and then answer 5 questions about it.
This tests your knowledge and understanding of road rules.
This will change if you take your test from 28 September 2020. You’ll watch one video clip instead of reading a case study, and answer 3 questions about it.
How using a video clip will work
You’ll watch a short, silent, video clip and answer 3 multiple-choice questions about it.
You can watch the video clip as many times as you like during the multiple-choice part of the theory test.
