Questions About This Online System
If I do the ‘Car or MotorCycle Theory; Actual Test’ on this website will I receive a Certificate?
This online system is designed to ease preparation, and familiarise you with The Official Theory Test. The only body allowed to issue a Certificate for the Theory Test in Malta is Transport Malta. Thus, you would have to present yourself to The Theory Test Centre and perform the Test over there in order to receive a Certificate.
With one payment how many times can I try the Tests on this website?
- If you purchased the ‘All Questions’ Test you are allowed to try them 2 times, with 1 payment.
- If you purchased the ‘Actual Test’ you are allowed to try the Test 5 times, with 1 payment.
If I started the Test on my laptop, can I continue it on any other device?
Yes, as long as you are connected to the internet! The most important is that you remember the email and password you created to use this system when purchasing a test. That way you can start on a device and then continue on another device. There is no limit to the amount of devices you can use.
Am I allowed to start a Test than finish or continue at another time?
Yes! This is one of the great benefits about using this online system! This applies both for the ‘All Questions’ Tests and ‘Actual Tests’. The most important is that you remember the password you used when you purchased a Test. Once you login the system will continue from where you left off! However, keep in mind that this is not so for The Official Theory Test.
Do the Tests have a time limit?
The ‘All Questions’ Tests do not have a time limit, but the ‘Actual Tests’ have a 45 minute time limit, exactly like The Official Theory Test. Please, also refer to the question about the time window.
Do I have a time window?
Yes; The ‘All Questions’ Test has a time window of 30 day and The ‘Actual Test’ has a time window of 15 days.
Every time I do an ‘Actual Test’, are the questions the same?
No. The questions would be always at random, no matter how many times you take the test.
The questions used in this online system are the same as the ones provided by Transport Malta?
Yes! This is another of the huge benefits of this online system! The ‘All Questions’ Tests have the same database as the one from Transport Malta, and the ‘Actual Tests’ questions are also chosen at random by a computerised system from that same question bank.
I am finding it hard to go through all the question bank… what can I do?
One of the main reasons we have built this online system is to answer this questions! 🙂 You can do two things:
- Purchase the ‘All Questions’ Test, which has a database of 444 questions for CARS & 391 questions for MOTORCYCLES. Remember, that you have a 30 day time window for this tests, thus, if you do just 40 questions a day, which can be very easily achieved, you will go through all the possible questions in about 10 days!
- Purchase the ‘Actual Test’, which is identical to Transport Malta. You have five attempts with one payment. If you do all five of them and you PASS from all of them you have a greater chance of PASSING The Official Theory Test. However, this way you wouldn’t have gone through all the possible questions. See below for more info;
IMPORTANT: Since you wouldn’t be going through all the questions, solution two is not the recommended method, as it defies the purpose of The Theory Test. The Theory Test is there NOT just as an obstacle step towards obtaining your licence, but to give you a much better knowledge & understanding of the Road Regulations / Proper Procedures for your own SAFETY and that of OTHERS! Thus, doing this is NOT recommended. We are only mentioning this as from our research we found out that many pupils go for their Theory Test and hoping to pass by luck without even reading the questions. Going for the test with this approach is very irresponsible, but definitely much better than not doing any preparation. The ‘Actual Tests’ are only to be used AFTER going through the ‘All Questions’ Tests, in order to then Test yourself in the comfort of your convenient place / time and to familiarise yourself with The Official Test!
