2020 Theory Test Changes

At WiseDriving, we know how important learning to drive is! So, we want to help you brush up on your road safety to get behind the wheel even faster! As of 28th September this year, the Driving Theory test changed in the UK. You’ll now need to watch a short video clip and then answer questions about the video.

This new video is to replace the written case studies, to help the test be more accessible to those with reading or learning disabilities. Instead of reading the case study, you’ll watch a video instead – then answer questions that will test your knowledge of the rules of the road.

Don’t worry, the questions will still be multiple choice – but they’ll be related to the scenario that you see playing out on the screen.

You can also watch the video as many times as you need to while you complete this section of the test. So, if you move on to the second or third question, you can still go back to the video if you’re unsure.

This is what you’ll expect to see if you’re taking your test for the first time, or if you’re retaking a test from now on. Though this only affects the car test for now, so if you’re taking a motorcycle, lorry or bus theory test, you’ll still see the written case study.

Don’t forget to get in plenty of practice before your test! There are lots of different online resources to help you, click here to get started!
