Theory test change ‘more reflective of real-world driving’

The DVSA has announced plans to make the driving theory test more accessible to people with reading or learning difficulties, a move backed by the RAC.

Currently, candidates have to read a case study, before answering five related questions.

However from 14 April 2020, want-to-be drivers will instead watch a short, silent video clip – with three multiple-choice questions to follow.

Candidates will be able to watch the video clip infinite times during this part of the test.

The DVSA says the change will make the theory test more accessible, especially to people with a reading difficulty (like dyslexia), learning disability or developmental condition (like autism).
