The actual learner’s exam consists of a multiple choice test and an eye test.
A situation or road sign is giving along with several questions or statements. The written test is multiple choice with each question having at least three possible answers. In some cases, only one option is correct, in others more than one option is correct, and in some cases one option is more correct than the others.
Read all answers carefully and make sure you select the most correct option(s). Don’t hurry through the questions and select the wrong option because you didn’t read all the detail.
The Learner's Licence exam typically has 68 questions across the syllabus per the table below. To pass, you need circa 75% correct answers, though the allocation of questions and pass marks change over time so make sure you understand the requirements at your test centre.
Cheating during the official test is an offence. If convicted, a candidate will be disqualified from writing the test for at least 12 months.
Depending on your testing centre, you will either do the test using a computer or pen-and-paper. Check this with your testing centre at the time of booking the test so that you can prepare.
For the pen-and-paper test, you will be given a book of questions, an answer sheet, a chart of road signs and a book containing pictures of the vehicle controls and different road layouts.
Listen carefully to the instructions as you may only be required to answer sections pertinent to your vehicle class. Ask any questions to the examiner if you have them – there are always others that have the same questions.
