Hazard Perception

Hazard perception Test

The theory test’s most challenging section is the hazard interpretation test. The hazard perception test assesses a learner driver’s ability to recognise and respond to a risky situation. Early detection of a potential hazard is a valuable capability that all drivers can possess. Hazard perception skills aid in the prevention of traffic accidents and the saving of lives.

What is Hazard perception?

The hazard perception assessment comprises fourteen one-minute computer-generated video clips for car drivers and nineteen video clips for bus and truck drivers. Each clip contains one or two emerging hazards that students must recognise and respond to earn points. The more quickly a student reacts to a developing hazard, the more points he or she receives. The score scales from five to one, with no points awarded if the examinee responds too late.
