How to proceed
Book your test
Book the test at your nearest test centre. The centres will be given at www.gov.uk. The fee for online booking is £23. Make sure you have your provisional license number with you while booking. If you book using an unofficial site, you may end up paying more money. There is no guarantee that you may get the booking also is you move through unofficial sites. So it is advisable to book on www.gov.uk. You can also alter the dates on this.
Revise your portions
Make sure you read through the notes you have collected. The test will be online and you will need to be thorough in your knowledge. Unlike a written exam, you may find it confusing to skip difficult queries or keep them for the last to think and solve. It is better to complete each question before you move on to the next.
You can have a 15 minute practice session before the actual one to get familiar with the system.
The Actual test
The test will have a multiple choice part. There will be 50 questions and you have to get 43 correctly to pass the exam. The total time allotted for this session is 57 minutes. So try not to waste time thinking unnecessarily.
There may be case study questions also where you will be given 5 queries based on a story which appears online at that time.
For each session, the necessary instructions will appear on screen.
There is an option to flag questions and come back to them later, however you have to make sure you use your time wisely if at all you are skipping questions. Do not keep all to the last and then leave the test incomplete.
After this portion, you will be given a three minute break. You can either take rest or watch a video on how the next part is going to be.
There is a hazard perception test following this break. If you do not want to take a break,proceed to the hazard perception test directly. Out of 75 points , you have to score a minimum of 44 points.
Receiving your result
At the end of your exam, you can wait for the result. It will be handed over to you at the end. If you pass, you will receive a letter with a pass certificate number on it. You would require this number for applying for your practical test, so make sure you don’t lose it. If somehow you do lose it, you can reapply to get the certificate through www.gov.uk.
Validity of this certificate is two years. So you need to proceed to your practical test within this time limit and pass it as well.
