Hazard perception

Hazard perception test is a part of the UK driving theory test. Here you can find some very important applications for practicing hazard perception test.

Most free theory test practices, like this website, has a limited amount of multiple-choice tests and no hazard perception tests. Keep in mind that the actual theory test contains also the Hazard perception test. Most of the learners who fail at their first attempt, haven't prepared for the hazard perception part enough. To avoid failing your theory test, you should practice using only the DVSA revision theory test material. That is the only material which gives you almost similar questions as in the actual test (because the actual test is made by DVSA)

DVSA Hazard perception clips

Here you can find the DVSA hazard perception revision tests:

DVSA hazard perception test is the only test which has the new CGI hazard perception video clips. It is very similar with the actual test because it is made by the DVSA. We recommend you to try for example www.theorytest.org which has the most advanced hazard perception test practice.

What is hazard perception?

The hazard perception test has been part of the theory test since 2002. Hazard perception part makes up the second half of driving theory test and involves the pupil watching a series of video clips and giving their answer when they notice a hazard.

All the hazard perception clips are computer generated imagery CGI. This means that the video clips are made using computer and not filmed in the real environment.

Common potential hazards which may develop in the clips includes:

  • Hidden Road Junctions and turns
  • Vehicles changing/merging lanes
  • Pedestrians exiting vehicles, crossing the road
  • Pedestrians or cyclists crossing the road
  • Weather Conditions
  • Road surfaces
  • Vehicles emerging from side roads, parking places or driveways
  • Junctions and roundabouts
  • Large vehicles moving over to your side of the road
  • Horse riders
