Online PR News – 14-September-2009 – – The DSA has revised the motorcycle driving practical test from May 2009. The aim of the new

test is to improve the standard of the skill and road safety of motorcycle 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.

The motorcycle driving test is made up of two parts; the multiple choice part and the hazard

perception part. The first part 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 second part is the Hazard perception test . 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.

If you pass one part and fail the other you will fail the whole theory test, and need to

take both parts again. Once you have passed the motorcycle theory test only then you can

apply to take the practical driving test .

The standard fee for the Motorcycle Theory test is 31.00.
