Comments

Found a lot of faults with the questions on the practice theory tests, many questions were badly worded, grammatically incorrect or had mistakes. The quantity of tests provided is excellent, but they should all be reviewed.

When I take my theory test now do I only need to score 30 out of 35 in the multiple choice and 58.7% for the hazard.
