Before you start this part of the test you will be given the oportunity to work through a practice session for up to 15 minutes to get you 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 enviroment and documentation.


Only one question will apear on the screen at one time, most questions will ask you to mark one correct answer from four possible answers given.  Some questions may ask for two or more correct answers from a selection.


Take your time and read the questions carefully.
