4. Driving Theory
a. Do you have to do a theory test in your country?
If so, what topics does it cover?
b. Click on the links (to external sites) and explain what a learner needs to know about these aspects of driving.
- A diagram showing different lengths
- These sets of road signs grouped by shape
- This collage of weather conditions
- One blue car and one yellow arrow
- This group of products
c. In some countries, learners also have to pass a computerised ‘hazard perception’ test.
- A hazard is often defined as ‘something which causes you to slow down or change direction’. What are some examples of frequent hazards you might meet on the roads?
d. This is a video explaining hazard perception to learner drivers in the UK. Read the three questions, then watch the video with these questions in mind.
- When can a pedestrian become a hazard?
- How does the cyclist show that he intends to change lanes?
- Why is the police car causing a hazard?
