The Hazard Perception Test

The Hazard Perecption Test

The Hazard perception test is taken directly after your theory test, you will have a short break and then a video clip will come onto the screen to explain what you need to do.

Both the Theory test and hazard perception test need to be passed together, you cannot pass one and fail the other. The Hazard perception test is is designed to test your awareness of potential hazards whilst driving in various weather conditions. Clips will be in various weather from bright sun to heavy rains, also in daytime and nighttime.

You will be given a series of 14 video clips around 60 seconds long, they all show general day to day driving. Each clip will show be at least one developing hazard, but at-least one of the clips will feature two developing hazards.

You may spot a hazard too quickly (you are looking for them after all) If you spot a hazard and click, count to 2 and click again. Remember if you click too much you will be awarded 0 points.

Hazards will be various issues, they may be road conditions, other road users (vehicles, bicycles, and pedestrians.)
The earlier you spot a hazard developing, the higher the score. Remember, a hazard is something you need to take action on.

There are 15 hazards and you can score up to 5 points per each hazard.

The pass mark for the hazard perception test is 44 out of 75.
