Theory Test Practice Questions

For every Friday that comes around, there will be a series of theory test questions to examine your existing knowledge or perhaps find an answer to something you didn't already know. The categories that a question may be on are:

  • Alertness
  • Attitude

  • Hazard Awareness
  • Incidents, Accidents & Emergencies
  • Motorway Rules
  • Types of Road Vehicles
  • Road Signs
  • Road Rules / Laws
  • Personal Safety and Vehicle Safety 
  • Vehicle Handling
  • Vehicle Loading

Any questions related to any of the above may be in this blog. 

Please Note: Answers are at the bottom of this page so make sure not to view them until finished. Either write your answers on a piece of paper or note them on an online document. 


  1. What is a "blind spot"?
  2. When on the motorway and you see a sign with a green background in addition to one, two or three white diagonal lines, what is this suggesting?
  3. If you want to U-turn on a public road, what should you do beforehand?
  4. By law, what are you required to do if you receive 6 penalty points within the first two years of driving?
  5. To what degree will heavy rain affect your overall stopping distance?


  1. A blind spot is specific areas in and outside the car that you cannot see with your mirror. This causes drivers so sometimes look around without the assistance of their car mirrors. 
  2. A sign which has a green background and one, two or three white diagonal lines is telling you approximately how many yards are remaining until the end of that road. At the end of this road could be a roundabout for example. Each line represents 100 yards so one line is 100 yards, two lines is 200 yards and three lines is 300 yards. 
  3. Before making a U-turn on a public road, you should check each and every direction where a vehicle could possibly emerge from and make sure it's clear before acting. Ensure there is enough space before performing the U-turn.
  4. Receiving six points on your licence within the first two years of driving will require you to retake both your theory and practical driving tests. Your licence will be revoked and you will need to carry out everything again. 
  5. Heavy rain can impact stopping distance by over double the normal stopping rate. This means that, under such circumstances, you should prepare to stop earlier than usual. 


The topics covered this week were alertness (x2), road signs, documents and vehicle handling.
