Theory test questions

In a theory test you'll be asked two types of questions: 

  • general questions, AND
  • specialist questions for the type of licence you're applying for. 

To help you learn the road rules, this section includes most of the test questions you might be asked.  

You can use these questions to test yourself, or have a friend or family member test you.

The questions you'll be asked are all taken from the road code, so you'll need to have a thorough understanding and knowledge of the entire road code.

Make sure you can answer all the general questions as well as the specialist questions for the type of vehicle licence you're applying for (car, motorcycle or heavy vehicle).

Note: the test questions may be updated at any time. New test questions will be based on information in the current Road code updates

Our Drive website can also help you practice, and has games and quizzes to help you remember the road code.
