This is a user lead computer-based learning programme which will prepare you for the CPC theory-based tests only:

  • 1a - multiple choice. You will answer 100 questions.

  • 1b - hazard perception test. You’ll watch 19 video clips and score points for the hazards you spot.

  • 2 - multiple choice. The test is made up of 7 case studies you work through on a computer. The case studies are short stories based on situations that you’re likely to come across in your working life.

The material contains all the latest, licensed DVSA revision questions and answers, over 700 interactive Hazard Perception clips that cover a wide variety of environments and road conditions, along with the largest database of professionally written CPC questions available.
