Hazard Perception - Further Information

At the end of the multiple choice questions there is a break of up to 3 minutes before the hazard perception part of the test starts. You cannot leave your seat during the break.

Before this part of the test starts you will be shown a short tutorial video explaing how the test works and including a sample clip. You can replay the clip if required.

The test itself shows 14 clips of film shown from the driver's perspective. Each clip contains one or more developing hazards which require you to take action. You should click the mouse as soon as you see the hazard. The sooner you click the mouse after it has become a developing hazard, the more you will score up to a maximum of 5 points per developing hazard. When you click the mouse it will not change the road scene in any way, but a red flag will appear at the bottom of the screen.

The pass mark for hazard perception is currently 44 out of 75 - this equates to approximately 3 out of a possible 5 marks for each developing hazard.

This part of the test lasts for approximately 20 minutes. There is no option for re-viewing any of the clips of film.

At the end of the hazard perception test you can take off your headphones and make your way to the invigilator who will give you your results.
