Motorbike test - Pass motorbike theory test

Motorbike Test:

The motorbike theory test is made up of two parts: multiple choice part and hazard perception part .
The first part in motorbike test is the multiple choice part consisting of 50 questions. This section is designed to test your understanding of the theory behind driving. You need to get 43 questions right out of 50 and the time limit is 57 minutes.

The motorbike test is a computer-based test at various tests centres around the country.
This section is designed to test your understanding of the theory behind driving. Before the motorbike theory test starts you'll be given instructions on how the test works.

You can also choose to go through a practice session of the multiple choice questions to get used to the layout of the test. At the end of the practice session the real test will begin.

The second part in motorbike driving test is the Hazard perception. This section is designed to test your awareness of potential hazards whilst driving. You will be shown 14 clips of 1 minute each having 15 hazards in all (1 clip will have 2 hazards). The test is for 75 marks (5 marks / hazard) and pass marks are 44. The hazard perception part is also delivered on a computer but you respond by clicking a button on the mouse. The earlier you spot a hazard developing that may require the driver to take some action, the higher the score.

Unlike multiple choice questions, for the hazard perception test there are no separate versions for different vehicles e.g. car, bike, heavy vehicle etc, each vehicle category takes the same test, however the pass mark is different for different categories of tests.

You won't be able to review your answers to the hazard perception test; as on the road, you'll only have one chance to respond to the developing hazard.

If you pass one part and fail the other you will fail the whole motorbike theory test , and need to take both parts again.

At the end of the hazard perception part of the theory test you'll be invited to answer few customer survey questions.
Once you have passed motorbike test only then you can apply to take the practical driving test.

Motorbike practical test:

The motorbike practical tests was revised from April 2009. The aim of the new test is to improve the standard of the skill and road safety of motorbike and moped riders. This group amongst all users of the road faces the highest risk of injury or death, particularly in the case for young and inexperienced riders.
