What is a knowledge question?
The knowledge questions cover 16 core areas (presented in sections A-D of the question book) that are included in all the tests. These questions are factual. For example, they will ask you to identify fire extinguishers and signs. There is an additional knowledge question bank for each specialist test.
You do not need to have a detailed knowledge of the exact content of any regulations. However, you do need to show that you know what is required of you, the things you must do (or not do), and what to do in certain circumstances (for example, upon discovering an accident).
Legislation in Northern Ireland and Scotland differs from that in the rest of the UK. For practical reasons, all candidates (including those in Northern Ireland and Scotland) will be tested on questions using legislation relevant to the remainder of the UK only.
There are four different styles of knowledge question that may be presented within your test. These are explained below.
