14. What Happens During the Oral Test
The oral test in Mauritius is also known as the audio visual test as you are shown the questions on a computer screen at the exam centre and the questions are also read out through a loudspeaker in the room. A fee of Rs500 currently applies if you're planning to take the test and once that's paid, you're given an appointment to assess your understanding of the Highway Code at the Traffic Branch in Port-Louis or Curepipe.
At The Examination Centre
Remember to bring these documents:
- Provisional licence
- Convocation letter
- Payment receipt for the test
- Birth certificate
- Identity card
During the exam, you're given 40 multiple choice questions but the first 5 are sample questions and do not carry any points. They are only included to ease you into the test, that is, to make you feel more comfortable and less nervous about the procedure. If you get 29 questions right out of the remaining 35, you will pass. For those who fail, you'll have to book another appointment and resit the test.
Although the oral test is said to be computerised, you will need to mark your answers on a sheet of paper (answer sheet) rather than entering them on the computer system itself. You will only get one answer sheet. It is also worth noting that you're allocated 20 minutes for the test and that's divided into 30 seconds time period for each question shown. You will not get the chance to go back to a previous question, so you'll have to mark an answer before your 30 seconds are up.
If you pass, you will be able to proceed with the formalities to go to the next stage which most likely will be the practical test. However if you fail for any reason, you're allowed to ask the invigilator how many questions you got wrong and what the correct answers to those were.
There's a test guide for learners which you should read as it may contain some other information not included here.
Passing the Test
Preparation is the key to passing, therefore you are advised to learn the traffic signs well, understand properly the different markings on roads, hand signals and other gestures by drivers and the police as well as The Road Traffic Act.
Our oral test course has been designed with this in mind - preparing learners like yourself for the test. With the different lessons and quizzes, you'll be ready in no time!
