Test wyboru (multiple-choice)

During gambling perception you will watch 19 short films with dangerous situations on the road. In 18 films one threat will be shown and in 1 film two threats will be shown. Your task will be to react quickly to an evolving threat, and it is important to react in a timely manner. The score depends on how long you react to the developing danger.
Please note that all videos will only be shown once and you cannot repeat the presentation or correct your previous decision. You can get a maximum of 100 points, so you can get 5 points from any threat situation.
In order to get a positive mark on your gambling perception you need to score a minimum of 67 points.
A case study takes 90 minutes to answer questions about seven selected situations on the road.
The user has at his disposal a mouse, a keyboard and a touch screen of a computer, on which the following are displayed: text describing a given situation (left side) and questions or commands (right side). Depending on the situation, this may be the case:
- Text of the question and proposed answers. You must tick the appropriate answer (one or more);
- Text of the question and a picture or sketch of where the question should be marked with the mouse;

To pass the exam you must have obtained at least 40 out of 50 points.
YOU MUST REMEMBER TO TAKE BOTH PARTS OF YOUR LICENCE WITH YOU FOR AN EXAMINATION: PHOTO OF THE CARD AND THE PAPER PART (COUNTERPART)
At the beginning of the exam, you must answer five questions to determine whether you are able to properly assess the condition of the vehicle you will be driving in – that is, whether it is in working order, ready to drive and safe for the driver and other road users.
Any incorrect answer shall be treated as a driving error. At this stage four such mistakes are made, the fifth is treated as serious and as such disqualifies the examinee.
You will be asked to perform various manoeuvres while driving. Remember -the examiner must make sure that you are driving safely and correctly. So you need to be able to communicate in English, the highway code, and be able to apply it in real life driving situations.
When driving, the examiner tells you well in advance which direction the examiner should take. The test trails are designed to cover the different typical conditions you may encounter on the road.
Maneuver on the square
Reverse to a bay on the S-shaped track.
When you have completed the ride, the examiner will tell you if this part of the exam has been passed. You can ask him how he has passed the exam. Then the examiner will discuss everything that happened while driving.
Note: If you make one serious or unsafemistake, the skill test will not be passed.
