Theoretical tests in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are expected to change from April 14, 2020.
The government’s official website announced that the theory test would include three multiple-choice questions based on a short video.
What changes in the theory test in April 2020?
For the current theory test, you need to read the details of a case study and then answer 5 questions about it. These questions are designed to test both your knowledge and understanding of road traffic regulations.
From the 14th from April 2020, this should change. Instead, you need to watch a video clip and answer three questions about what you saw.
How it will work
The video clip is short and quiet. Then you have to answer three multiple choice questions. You can play the video as many times as you like during the multiple-choice part of the theory test.
According to www.gov.uk.The video shows a situation like driving through a city center or driving on a country road.
What will the new questions be?
According to the government website, answer questions such as:
- Why are motorcyclists considered to be endangered road users?
- Why should the driver look for motorcyclists at intersections on the side street?
- Who can cross the chevrons in this clip to overtake other vehicles if it’s safe?
For each of the 3 questions you have to choose the right answer from 4 possible answers.
What will the screen look like?
On the left side of the screen is the video with the option to play, pause, switch to a specific part of the video and switch to full screen mode. A question and 4 possible answers are displayed on the right side of the screen.
