BSL Theory Test is a picture-based car theory test that is designed to help learner drivers learn and understand the car theory test by making it 100% visual. All the car theory test questions and answers are exactly the same as the real car theory test that you will find from the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) but with added pictures.
BSL Theory test was created to help learner drivers understand the driving theory test as well as pass the driving theory test 1st time by being completely visual. Whilst studying for the theory test revision and learning from the pictures you will also understand the difficult theory test revision questions many learner drivers have struggled with over the years leaving you feeling more confident on the day of the real DVSA car theory test.
You should turn up to the DVSA theory test centre at least 15 minutes earlier than your test time as candidates are not guaranteed entry if they arrive late and you can also lose your DVSA car theory test fee of £23.
Yes, most definitely bring your provisional card (green card) with you on the day of your official car theory test as failure to do so will result in not being seen and losing your booking fee according to the DVSA.
The DVSA at the driving theory test centre will not ask you for the paper part of your provisional licence so you can leave the paper part of your provisional licence at home as only your card is needed but feel free to bring that with you to the car theory test if you like. Years ago you were required to produce both the provisional licence and the counterpart to both the driving theory test and practical driving test but now they only require the green card.
You will have 57 minutes to answer 50 random car theory test questions. You will also have to complete a case study and the car hazard perception part too.
You will need a minimum of 43 car theory test questions answered correctly out of the 50 questions you are asked.
There are also 14 hazard perception video clips that you will need to watch and answer as well the video case study.
Hazard perception test comes after the car theory test so as soon as you finish the car theory test you can choose to have a short break and then start the hazard perception test or go straight into it.
You will watch 14 different short video clips and you will need to click the mouse as soon as you see a hazard developing. Every time that you click the mouse you will see a red flag appear to let you know it has been acknowledged.
The earlier you click the mouse to a hazard you see the more points you will receive. If you click as soon as you see the hazard you can get 5 points, the later you leave it the more your points will reduce. Try not to over-click as clicking too many times in each hazard perception video may result in 0 points.
The lowest points that you can get for the hazard perception videos is 0, so please do not leave it too late to click as you will not get any points for that video plus it is never a good idea to click relentlessly on each video as that would be considered cheating and you will not get any points for that hazard perception video clip.
It is never a good idea to over-click (click too many times) as the computer will understand what you are trying to do and give you 0 points for cheating.
For the hazard perception videos that you will find on the car theory test, the maximum points that you can score is 75 points.
You will need a minimum of 44 points to pass the hazard perception part of the DVSA theory test.
One of the 14 hazard perception videos on the car theory test has a double hazard included so that question has a maximum of 10 points and all the other videos have a maximum of 5 points.
Once you have completed the DVSA car theory test, video case study and hazard perception videos then make your way to reception where you will get your results. Good luck!
Congratulations on passing the car theory test! It is now a good idea to get in touch with your ADI (Approved Driving Instructor) as soon as you can to let them know the good news and start planning for the big day, the car practical driving test.
In order to book your practical driving test you will need to have passed the driving theory test. You can prepare for both the DVSA theory test and the driving test at the same time but you cannot book or take the practical driving test until you have passed the DVSA theory test.
Getting a driving licence can mean opening up a lot of doors for many people. Not only can you drive your own car independently but it can also save you money on taxis, trains and buses. Also having a car is handy for shopping trips and simple day outs too.
