Theory Test

Once you have obtained your provisional license, you will need to start thinking about taking your driving theory test. The DSA theory test consists of a multiple choice section and a hazard perception test.

You will need to be successful in both parts in order to pass overall, so we suggest getting the recommended reading under your belt and attempting as many mock theory tests as possible to familiarise yourself with the structure of the programme.

The multiple choice section is presented with a touch screen computer. You will be expected to answer a total of 50 questions; answering at least 43 correct in order to pass. With the hazard perception test, your responses are recorded through the use of a computer mouse. You must click as early as possible when you see a developing hazard with a maximum score of 5 per hazard. There are a total of 15 developing hazards giving a possible total of 75. You must score at least 44 in order to pass this part of the test.

Here’s what our happy drivers had to say about our services:

I’m so glad I found Sophie to teach me to drive. She is an amazing instructor, she makes you feel comfortable, and is understanding about any mistakes or parts you’re struggling on. I can’t wait to finish learning and know that I’ve got all the skills to be a good and careful driver.

Would Highly Recommend Sophie as an instructor. Thank you Sophie.

Neha Khadun

A must go to if you’re looking to pass your test. My instructor Sophie was amazing, her teaching techniques were very good made me feel comfortable coming from a different driving school to Metro. I would highly recommend if you want to learn how to drive and get on the roads ASAP Metro is the place.

Nathaneal Howe

Sophie was an amazing instructor, teaching me not only how to pass my test, but also how to be a sensible, careful and considerate driver. Learning in my 40s would’ve been so difficult if I didn’t have Sophie by my side to guide me through the process. She is friendly, genuine, warm-hearted and a brilliant tutor too.

arthur radd

I would 1000% recommend Sophie as an instructor. I hadn’t driven in over 9 months after i failed, and my confidence was lacking. I found Metro driving school a week before my test date, and Sophie’s clear teaching style, knowledge of the area, and positivity helped me get a pass in just a week of intense learning. I definitely would’ve passed first time if I started with her beforehand.
