Hazard perception test

The hazard perception test measures your ability to recognise and respond to potentially dangerous situations and react appropriately.

The actual test involves responding to film clips of real traffic situations. You will see what the driver would see. The dashboard shows you the speed at which you are travelling and if the indicators are operating. You will be given two questions to practise before the actual test starts to help you become familiar with how the test works.
