Rider knowledge test

The Rider Knowledge Test is a computer-based road rules knowledge test you need to pass to get your learner rider licence.

About the test

You have to answer 45 questions in total. The computer selects the questions at random from a bank of more than 600 questions.

In the first part of the test, you’ll be asked 15 general knowledge questions, and you need to get at least 12 correct. You’ll then be asked 30 road safety questions (including traffic signs), and you need to get at least 29 correct.

If you get 4 questions wrong in the general knowledge section, or 2 wrong in the road safety section, the test will be automatically terminated.

There’s no time limit for completing the test – take your time to carefully read and consider each question.

Question banks

You can access the DKT Question Bank for riders or riders of special mobility vehicles, which includes all of the questions you can be asked during the test. There are 3 answer options given for each question, with the correct answer shown as the first option, and in bold text.

Practice test

You can take the free online practice knowledge test as many times as you like to help you prepare for taking the real test.


A test fee is payable each time you attempt the test.
