Driving theory tests were introduced in the UK in 1996. You must take, and pass, the DVSA Theory Test before you can apply for, and take, your practical driving test. The driver theory test became harder in recent years as, in addition to the multiple-choice part of the test, you are now also tested on hazard perception (since November 2002) and both parts need to be passed at the same time. Also, since the 1st September 2007, the pass mark for the multiple choice has been raised to 44 out of 50 questions (30/35).
