    Just done the car test one:

    Congratulations you have passed

    Pass Mark: 43

    You scored 48 out of a possible 50 (attempted 50).

    And the Bike one

    Congratulations you have passed
    Pass Mark: 43
    You scored 48 out of a possible 50 (attempted 50).

    I'm not that bad then. I couldn't remember the colours of motorway

    48/50 and there wasn't a question about studs.
    I think it gives a different set of questions each time you view the page.
    There were no theory tests when I passed my test in 1974.
    Just a few questions about the Highway Code at the end.

    81 (7th Feb, 1981, to be precise) for the bike, sometime around 85~86
    the car

    God no

    46 out of 50 for the car one (a couple of silly errors, and one thing
    I'd no idea on [how long is a theory pass valid for]), 49 out of 50
    for the bike.

    46 for me too. Would've been 47 if I'd read the instructions properly and
    given 2 answers for the trailer question

    I took mine at 9:00am on the 13th October 1965. I passed at 9:30am.
    I did this from a CD last year when a pal was going in for his test on a
    bike. 100% was an absolute piece of piss. I can't believe that it's THIS
    easy in fact.--

    From the LGV theory test:

    "You are overtaking a motorcyclist. What should you do?"

    Comic Sans Serif: now *there's* an indication of credibility.

    I passed with room to spare, but:

    I noticed one question that (IIRC) is not valid in this country
    (although I got the answer right).

    One of my errors has never been, and never will be, applicable to me, so

    One of my errors was (IMHO) a valid answer, and I think more likely to
    be correct than their answer.

    Operating temperature varies depending on road surface, ambient
    temperature and style of riding. Cold is a more stable state for the
    tyres to be in when checking them - the ambient temperature difference
    between a hot day and a cold day won't make much difference to a tyre's
    pressure in the same way that getting it hot on the road will.

    There's too many variables involved in checking hot temperatures.

    45 dropped 3 for not reading the question, i.e. answered one option
    when more than one was required.

    But I didn't know that you should indicate at the 300 yd marker, even
    though I do(!) and humps/uneven road. Thinking about it uneven road
    is two humps?

    Yup. I had the same question twice...

    12) If you see a person waiting at a zebra crossing who has a white
    stick with red bands, they are likely to be: -
    A - Blind
    B - Deaf and without Speech
    C - Blind and deaf
    D - A Manchester united supporter
