The Tests

To gain a Full UK Driving License you will need to pass two tests. The Theory Test, including Hazard Perception, and The Practical Test.

The Theory Test consists of two parts if you fail one part you will have to take both parts again.

The multiple-choice part consists of 50 questions and as most people are aware a question will give you several possible answers and some question may require more than one answer.

Some of the questions may also be given as a case study which will show a short story based on real life examples or experiences you could come across when driving consisting of five questions.

Should you have difficulty answering a question you have an option to “flag” the question, which means you can move on and come back to it later. The pass mark for this part of your test is 43 out of 50.

When you have finished the multiple-choice part you can have a break of up to three minutes before you start the hazard perception part.

The hazard perception part will give you 14 video clips showing everyday road scenes which will contain one developing hazard however be aware one of the clips will contain two hazards so watch out for it.

A developing hazard is something that may result in you having to take some action, such as changing direction or speed.

The scoring works on a decreasing scale starting at five working down to zero. The sooner you spot the potential developing hazard you should click your mouse button to gain as high a mark as possible.

Do not worry if you click the mouse button and the hazard you saw does not develop any further, just wait for the next hazard to appear. If however the hazard you saw does begin to develop click the button again and when you finally see the hazard has caused your car to change speed or direction click the mouse button again as this will maximize your chances of scoring more points.

Be aware though if you click continuously or in a pattern during any of your clips you will be told at the end of the clip that you have scored zero!

An example of when to respond to a hazard:
Think of a parked car on the side of the road. When you first see it, it isn’t doing anything – it’s just a parked car. If you respond at this point, you wouldn’t score any marks, but you wouldn’t lose any marks.
When you get closer to the car, you notice that its right-hand indicator starts to flash. This would make you think that the driver of the car is going to move away. The hazard is now developing and a response at this point would score marks. The indicator coming on is a sign that the car has changed from a potential hazard into a developing hazard.
When you get closer to the car, you’ll probably see it start to move away from the side of the road. Another response should be made at this point.

The pass mark for the hazard perception part is 44 out of 75.

Testimonals

  • ⭐️ ⭐️THE BEST DRIVING INSTRUCTOR IN THE WORLD⭐️⭐️ I’ve just recently passed driving test after being taught by Lee. When I first started lessons, I was a nervous wreck but Lee was amazingly patient with me and always took the time and effort to teach me, even when I felt I couldn’t do it, he would always reassure me and most importantly believed in me. Thanks to Lee and all his SuperInstrutor abilities I’m now a safe confident driver Thank you Lee ?

Besides being an excellent driving instructor, Lee is also very friendly and a good laugh. I passed my first driving test after only 13 lessons with Lee!

    I learnt to drive with Debbie Edwards and passed my driving test first time after 8 months of learning. Deb was very patient and understanding when it came to my lessons and massively helped to improve my confidence and skills within driving. Thank you!!

    Carla Hopkinson
  • Lee has to be the most patient driving instructor in the world. He was alway calm, took time to explain everything and built my confidence up after each lesson. I passed my test first time and honestly believe that man could teach anyone in the world to drive! So happy to now be driving, but will miss my weekly chat and drive with Lee. Thank you.

About Pass Plus

The Pass Plus scheme is aimed at new drivers to help them become better drivers. To join Pass Plus you need to find an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) to train you. Your ADI will help you complete the six training modules to pass the training course.

About Pass Plus
Pass Plus is an established training course aimed at new drivers. The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) with the help of insurers and the driving instruction industry designed it.

Statistics show that new drivers are more likely to have an accident in the first two years after passing their test, due to lack of driving experience.

Pass Plus builds on your skills and knowledge. It will teach you how to anticipate, plan for and deal with all kinds of hazards, to help you become a more confident driver.

Who Can Do Pass Plus Training?
You can take a Pass Plus course at any time, but it’s mainly aimed at new drivers in the first year after passing their test.

Pass Plus Modules
Pass Plus consists of six modules about driving in different conditions:

– in town
– in all weathers
– on rural roads
– at night
– on dual carriageways
– on motorways

The Cost of a Pass Plus Course
Your Pass Plus course fees start from £180 depending on how long your training takes. The course takes at least six hours.

Choosing An Instructor
To do the Pass Plus, you need to choose an Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) to train you. The ADI must be registered with the DSA as a Pass Plus instructor, and they must also have their ADI ‘green badge’. Most of our instructors at Johnson School of Motoring are pass plus registered.

How You’ll Be Instructed
Pass Plus Pupil’s Guide
At the start of your course, your instructor will give you a copy of the ‘Pass Plus Pupil’s Guide’. This contains detailed information about all aspects of Pass Plus.

Duration
Pass Plus training will take at least six hours, though it can take longer if your instructor thinks it’s necessary.

The Training Sessions
Pass Plus is a practical course and all modules should be practical sessions. However, local conditions and time of year may mean that some modules need to be given as a theory session. A theory session could be given if there is no motorway nearby. Generally at least five and a half out of six hours should be spent in the car. You will not have to take a test at the end of the course but you will be continually assessed during the modules.

Recording Progress
Your instructor will complete a training report form that you’ll sign and date when you reach the required standard in each module. To pass the course you’ll need to reach a satisfactory standard in all the course modules. You’ll be given a progress record to help you to keep track of your progress throughout the course.

At the End of Your Training
On successfully completing your training you’ll be sent your Pass Plus certificate to claim your discount on your car insurance policy.

Enquiries About Pass Plus
If you have questions about Pass Plus you are welcome to contact either the DSA Pass Plus section or us.

About us

Johnson School of Motoring Ltd has been a successful business for over 14 years started by Steve and Lauraine Johnson (no we are not related).

Having worked a number of years for other driving schools between us we decided to join together to create a school that is not only professional but also where we can make our pupils feel comfortable and relaxed in a friendly environment.

To give you an idea of what to expect during your course of lessons our instructors will advise you on how many lessons you may require. For example the Driving Standards Agency recommend you may need a minimum of 35 hours of professional tuition with at least 20 hours of private practice.

The standard of driving on today’s roads has had to improve a great deal as the roads are busier and there are more hazards to be aware of to become a safe driver!

Remember! When you have passed your tests you will have a 2 year period whereby if you receive 6 or more points on your license you will be returned to a provisional license holder and you will have to do both tests again, so drive safely!
