From 28 September 2009 a "case study" will be incorporated into the Theory Test.
The DSA state that this change has been made in order for "candidates to be tested on understanding as well as knowledge" and to "put learning into context".
The theory test case study will take the form of a scenario, or short story, on which five questions will be based.
As part of the multiple choice section of the test, the case study will assess candidates’ understanding of driving theory, whilst the multiple choice questions will continue to assess knowledge of the subject.
Candidates will answer the questions in the same way as they do now, using either the touch screen or mouse.
