Hazard Perception Test – What you need to know

The Hazard Perception Test is also known as the “awareness” test and is made up of video clips to test your knowledge of driving hazards. The video clips shown (14 in total) are all about one minute long.\r\n\r\nThe Videos shown will obviously contain a driving hazard that you will have to identify, in 13 of the clips there will be 1 hazard to identify and in one of the clips 2 hazards to identify, unfortunately they won”t give you any hints as to which is the clip containing 2 hazards.\r\n\r\nDriver changes speed, direction or stops \r\n\r\nIn the video clips you will see hazards that will cause the driver to change speed, direction or even stop. To identify the hazards you will select the correct hazard by clicking either the left or right mouse button. Time is an issue here too as the quicker you identify the hazard the more points you will score. The points system operates on a scale of 5 to 0.\r\n\r\nOh if you were thinking of being clever and working round the hazard perception videos by clicking as many times as you could as the video plays the system will pick this up and you will ultimately score o. There may be other hazards on the video that you can see and click on but you will not loose points for clicking on them. Potential driving hazards won”t gain you points but also won”t loose you any either.\r\n\r\nRemember you are looking for hazards that will cause the driver to change speed, change direction or stop. This is the driving hazard you must identify to score points.\r\n\r\nPassing the Hazard Perception Test \r\n\r\nIn order to pass the test you must score at least 44 points out of possibly 75.\r\n\r\nDriving Theory Test \r\n\r\nThe hazard perception test is the second part of the driving theory test. It comes after the you finish the actual theory test and there is a break allowed of 3 minutes in between, a tutorial will be played as to how the hazard perception test works and after that has been shown the test will begin.
