You need to pass your theory and hazard perception test at the same time before
you can apply for your practical test.
You will need a valid provisional driving licence to take your theory
test. Once you've got that, you can book your theory and hazard
How the theory test works
The theory test is a 50-question multiple-choice test. To pass you must
answer 43 or more questions correctly within 57 minutes. Questions are
chosen at random from a bank of over 1,000 questions, and you answer by
touching the screen. During the test you have the option to skip
questions and return to them later.

How the hazard perception test works
Immediately after your theory test, you'll watch a series of 14
one-minute video clips, each showing potential hazards involving road
conditions, pedestrians or road users.
There are 15 hazards to identify and you can score up to 5 points on
each one, depending on how quickly you identify them. You need to score
44 out of 75 to pass.
How the practical test works
Before you start the driving ability part of your test, you’ll have an eyesight check and be asked two vehicle safety questions (“show me – tell me”).
In your practical test, you have 40 minutes to demonstrate everything you have learned in your driving lessons. You need to show to examiner you can drive competently and safely in all kinds of driving situations. You will be asked to perform one of four reversing manoeuvres (turning in the road, reversing around a corner, bay reverse parking, parallel parking) you’ve practised with your instructor, and possibly make an “emergency stop”. You will also have to show the ability to drive for some distance independently (approximately 10 minutes), either following a series of verbal instructions, following traffic signs, or a combination of both. It’s designed to assess your ability to drive safely while making decisions on your own.
In order to pass, you will have to complete the test with no serious faults, and you must have 15 or fewer minor errors.
