Driving Schools In Stirling : Touch Screen Theory Test

The touch screen theory test started on January 4, 2000 in the United Kingdom (UK). It’s also the time that all driving theory tests have been conducted in Britain using computer screens. Since then, no more paper or the test started to be paperless.


All you have to do during the test is select the right answers of various questions by simply touching the computer screens for the test’s multi choice element and then click the mouse button for the test’s second element which is called the Hazard Perception Test (HPT) being introduced in the UK on  November 14, 2002.


This “touchscreen” system had been carefully designed to make sure it will be easy to use. As a learner driver, you’ll have a practice session to last up to 15 minutes. Its objective is for you to be able to get used to the system even long before the actual theory test will start.


If you have any difficulty in using the system the staff will be on hand to help or assist you for your convenience and for fast but sure track towards your theory test success.


The screens were made easier to read. There’s only one question to appear on the screen, and at a time you’ll be able to move forwards and backwards through the questions on the screen. You’ll also be able to go back to any available questions which you want to repeat looking at. And you’ll be able to change any answers you want in touch screen theory test.


After taking the test you can expect to receive the test results before leaving the test centre. The following points may be of help to you. You may read every question carefully and take note how many answers have been required. Prioritise what to answer in the first place. Choose to answer first the easy ones and you just come back later to any question that you find more difficult in the test.


If you already finished answering ahead of the allotted time or when you think you have already finished checking through all your answers, you better make a re-checking if your answer on difficult question are really puzzling you.  Again, it’s just in case if you still have time left rather than spending it for nothing.


Then, you may have a short break of up to three minutes only before the start of the hazard perception element. After the multiple-choice, the hazard perception element follows which will consist of fourteen video clips. These will feature road scenes which are real and also the various types of developing hazards such as vehicles and pedestrians.


There are fifteen developing hazards which are scoreable in the test. The thirteen of the video clips will contain only one scoreable hazard whilst the other one of the video clips will contain two scoreable hazards that you have to perceive early.

You can find some examples of these developing hazards in mock hazard test where you can practise and prepare yourself well before taking the actual hazard perception test. You can even obtain the software for your computer having an interface which is as much the same as the actual test.
