Hazard perception test 2015

Hazard perception test is the second part of the UK driving theory test in 2015.

Hazard perception clips

Hazard perception part includes 14 video clips which are from the perspective of a car driver.
Each Hazard perception clip is one minute long. Learners have to indicate usually by clicking a mouse or touching the screen when they observe a developing hazard. Each of the clips will include 1 developing hazard, and one will include 2 developing hazards. The sooner you react to a developing hazard, the more points you get. 

Hazard perception test practice 

On January 2015 Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency introduced new computer-generated imagery (CGI) clips that replaced the old filmed clips in the hazard perception part of the theory test.
The changes in the hazard perception test came due to the poor quality of the old filmed clips. The new hazard perception clips show the same situations as the old clips but they have better image quality and include modern surroundings and vehicles.
From practical perspective, the way the hazard perception test works has not changed. The main principles and the pass marks are the same.
Hazard perception clips feature everyday road scenes and contain at least one ‘developing hazard’, but one of the clips features 2 ‘developing hazards’. You should bear in mind that a ‘developing hazard’ is not merely something that requires your attention, but rather something that may result in you having to react to it by taking some action.

Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency mentioned that in the future CGI hazard perception clips may include situations with vulnerable road users such as children, cyclists and motorcyclists without any risk.
You can find many Hazard perception testing clips from the Internet. Here we offer you the best hazard perception clips to practise (coming soon)
