Case Study Questions for the
Theory Test from 2020

Are you ready for the NEW style Theory Test?

Since 28th September 2009 you need to answer a case study-style question as part of your Theory Test.

Now from 28th September 2020 Video clips are to replace written scenarios in UK driving theory tests to make them more accessible.
(These changes were postponed as the theory test service was closed on 20 March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.)

Learners will be asked three questions after watching a driving clip of up to 30 seconds.

Instead of reading case studies and answering Five questions about it, learners will have to watch a short, silent, video clips, which will be followed up with three multiple-choice questions.

Learners can watch the video clip as many as they wish before answering.

The changes will NOT apply to theory tests for motorcycles, lorries, bus or coaches and Approved Driving Instructors.

Currently In your Theory Test you are presented with one case study question where you will be required to answer 5 questions that are related to the scenario displayed on screen.
The New Video clips will only ask you 3 questions from the clip. Each question will still be in the multiple choice format as with the other Theory Test questions.

You will still need to answer 50 multiple choice questions

The pass mark remains at 43/50.

An example of the type of case study video is shown below.

You will be asked to answer questions like these after seeing the 30 second video clip:
  1. Why are motorcyclists considered vulnerable road users? Answer: Because they're harder to see.
  2. Why should the driver, on the side road, look out for motorcyclists at junctions? Answer:Because motorcyclists' speed and distance can be difficult to judge.
  3. In this clip, who can cross the chevrons to overtake other vehicles, when it’s safe to do so? Answer: Any vehicle can.
For each of the 3 questions, you’ll have to choose the correct answer from 4 possible answers.

The video below will show you the whole process on how the Theory test works
