New case study questions
The structure of case study questions in the multiple choice part of car driving theory test will change. In particular, written scenarios will be replaced by video clips. This change is introduced with the purpose of making case study assessment more easily accessible to everyone, in particular, to people with reading difficulties. In addition, this change makes the test more realistic since you observe the changing road situation while driving and have to react to it accordingly. The changes were developed by the DVSA in cooperation with many stakeholders including among others the British Dyslexia Association, the National Autistic Society and the British Deaf Association.
You can practise new case study questions here.
Each new case study question will show up to a 30-second video clip with a scenario of different driving situations. The driving may take place in a town centre or on a country road and you need to answer three questions about each video clip.
Note that the new video clips are not replacing the hazard perception part of the test. The number of the multiple choice questions remains the same - you will be asked a total of 50 multiple-choice questions. The hazard perception section of the theory test is not changing.
