AKT (Applied Knowledge Test)

This is a 3 hour multiple choice test of 200 questions. The AKT is a computer based exam taken at one of 150 Pearson VUE test centres, where the UK driving theory tests are delivered. (There is a local one in Scarborough).  You can take the AKT in ST2 or ST3 but you are not allowed to sit it in ST1. It is recommended that you have spent at least one rotation in GP before sitting the AKT exam as there are practical GP orientated questions. The cost is currently set at £459.00.
