Driving theory test - Case study section

From January 2012, new theory tests will be introduced using questions and answers that the public will not have had access to, making any previous theory test Q&A banks redundant.

Improvements to driving theory test
A new element is being introduced to the driving theory exam to test learners on their understanding of  driving, rather than just their knowledge of the facts.
From 28 September 2009, one case study will be included in the exam for car drivers, moped and motorcycle riders.

As part of the multiple choice section of the test, the case study will assess candidates' understanding of driving theory, while the multiple choice questions will continue to assess their knowledge of the subject.

The theory test case study will take the form of a scenario, or short story, on which five questions will
be based. Candidates will answer the questions in the same way as they do now, using either the touch screen or mouse.

If you have understood all the current questions in the DSA theory test question bank, then there is no need to worry.

So multiple choice element of the theory test will be of
  • 45 multiple choice questions = 45 marks
  • One case study scenario with 5 questions to answer = 5 marks
  • The pass mark = 43/50

What DSA says about the new case studies section in theory test?

DSA's Director of Driver Education and Learning, Jill Lewis, said: "Case studies are widely used in education to put learning into context and test comprehension of a subject, so many candidates will have  encountered this type of question before.
Initially we are introducing one case study based on existing questions in the theory test question bank, to get candidates used to the concept. It will also allow us to monitor any impact on the theory test. Over time, we plan to introduce more case studies into the theory test to assess candidates' understanding of what they have learned."
