Motorcycle Theory Test

When you’ve completed Compulsory Basic Training and before you can take your practical riding test, you need to pass your theory test.

It’s a really important part of learning to ride a motorbike: when you do your practical tests, you’ll need to show that you can use what you learn for this test when you’re riding on the road.

This test is specifically for motorcyclists, so you’ll have to pass it even if you’ve already passed your car theory test.

The motorcycle theory test currently (2021) costs £23

It’s vital to prepare for your theory test: there’s a lot to learn about the rules of the road. The better prepared you are, the more likely you are to pass first time, which will save you the time and money that retaking the test will cost.

The theory test has two parts:

  • the multiple choice part

  • the hazard perception part.

Preparing for the multiple choice test

The questions in the multiple choice test are taken from three books:

The Official Highway Code

The Official DVSA Guide to Riding - the essential skills

Know your traffic signs
