Before you can pass the UK driving test, you have to pass the theory test, which consists of two parts, the multiple choice section and the hazard perception test. The current fee to take the test is £25.00 which covers the cost of the Hazard test. You are asked 50 multiple choice questions. The pass mark is 43 or more and the time allowed to complete the test is 57 minutes. See the video on the right for an example of what to expect on the new Hazard Perception CGI test.

The hazard perception test is the second part of the driving theory test and is taken a few minutes after completing the multiple choice questions. For the hazard perception test the questions are made up of 14 video clips, the pass mark is 44 out of a possible 75. More info in the video above.
