Motorcycle Theory Test

Before or after passing your CBT test the next stage of learning to ride your motorcycle is the theory test.

The theory test is made up of a multiple choice, based on the Highway Code,  and a hazard perception video. You will need to pass both parts.

The motorcycle theory test contains questions specific to riding a motorcycle and are all covered from the Highway Code.

You can take a practice theory test with the DVLA website.

The multiple-choice section

This is a computerised multiple-choice question and answer session. There are 50 questions and you have 57 minutes to complete all the questions. The pass mark is 43 out of 50.

A question with several possible answers appear on your screen. Some questions have more than one correct answers. You need to select the correct answer/s, if you are unsure flag the question and return to it later.

There will be 5 questions based upon a short story focused on real life examples and experiences you may encounter when riding.

After the multiple-choice questions there is a 3 minute break before the hazard perception video will begin.

Hazard Perception

You will be shown 14 video clips on your computer screen, they will feature everyday road scenes containing at least one developing hazard, one of the clips will feature 2 developing hazards. You must take the clips in order and cannot review or return to a clip.

A developing hazard is something that results in you having to take action, such as changing speed or direction.

The maximum score for spotting a hazard is 5 points, the earlier you spot a hazard and identify it, the higher the score.

You must not just keep clicking your mouse or you will score zero for that clip.

The pass mark for motorcycle hazard perception is 44 out of 75.

You will need to pass both parts of the theory test and your certificate will last for 3 years.

Once you have completed your theory test you will need to take your Module 1 test
