The tests take place in a room in an approved test centre, and you are not allowed to take any personal effects in with you. These must be stored in lockers while you take the test.
The first part of the test is the multiple choice part. Before the test, you’ll receive an explanation of how it works, and you’ll also be given the chance to do a practice session before the real thing starts.
In the test, a question and several answers will appear on a computer screen. You have to select the correct answer (or in some cases, answers). You don’t have to answer the questions in order, and can flag questions you want to come back to later on.
This part of the test lasts 57 minutes, and the pass mark is 43 out of 50. After this, you can take a break of up to three minutes before the hazard perception part starts.
