Theory LGV Tests

Part of the LGV Training process is to pass the Hazard Perception and Multiple Choice Theory test.

The Hazard Perception test will consist of a series of film clips, shown from a driver’s point of view.

Before you start this test, you will be shown a short tutorial video that explains how the test works and gives you a chance to see a sample film clip. This will help you understand what you will need to do.

During the test you will be shown 19 film clips, each clip contains 1 or more developing hazards. You should respond by pressing the mouse button as soon as you see a hazard developing that may result in you, the driver, having to take some action, such as changing speed or direction.

There are 20 hazards in total.

Every time you click, a red flag will appear on the bottom of your screen in order to show your hazard has been noted.

In order to pass this test you will need to score at least 67 out of 100.

The Multiple Choice test will consist of 100 multiple choice questions, of which you will need to get a minimum of 85 correct, most questions will ask you to mark 1 correct answer from 4 possible, some questions may ask for 2 correct answers.

Before you start you will be given the chance to work through a practice session for up to 15 minutes to get used to the system.

Staff at the test centre will be available to help you if you have any difficulties.

The questions will cover a variety of topics relating to Road Safety, The Environment and Documentation. Only one question will appear on the screen at a time.

You can listen to the questions using headphones during the test, if that helps.

In a partnership with Driving Theory 4 All, Turning Point LGV Driver Training can supply you with a personalised online login to our online theory test revision area which will help you to prepare for the test.
