Hazard Perception Test
Some of us can spot a hazard and some of us can't!


So, what is Hazard Perception?

  • It's the ability to recognise, as early as possible, any situation that might cause you to take appropriate action
  • And to take the appropriate actions, correctly and in sufficient time

The basic actions are:

  • Changing speed
  • Changing direction
  • Stopping

But this really is only a BASIC approach to the concept of hazard perception
Put another way it's the ability to scan the road ahead and behind and:

  • Identify potential hazards quickly
  • Anticipate the actions of others
  • Take the correct action early and safely

Why was this additional test introduced?

  • New drivers can take as much as two seconds longer to identify a potential hazard
  • Your reactions as a new driver may seem quicker
  • But a more experienced driver will identify the hazard much earlier and might avoid a collision!

How is the test conducted?

  • You'll be shown a series of video clips involving motor vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists
  • You'll need to identify potential hazards accurately within a certain time frame
