The hazard perception test, car,
is an addition to the theory test

The hazard perception test and theory test have to be completed successfully

on the same day

We recommend the FOCUS software for practicing the theory and hazard perception tests.

The DSA - car hazard perception test is compulsory but it is nothing to worry about. As necessary as good tuition is for driving you will also need resources for the hazard perception test.

The DSA - car hazard perception test. Findley's driving school recommends the Focus Multimedia set of hazard perception test clips to practice on for the hazard perception test element of the theory test. For the hazard perception test you will watch fourteen short hazard perception test video clips on the computer, each clip lasting approximately a minute.

The Focus Multimedia DVD package is available online from Amazon or other software retailers. While being considerably cheaper than the official DSA discs it contains exactly the same information and presents the tests in exactly the same way that they are presented in the test centre.

Each time that you see a developing hazard during the hazard perception test clip you must click on the mouse as soon as possible. Not as often as possible. Multiple clicking for a hazard on the hazard perception test will lead to a score of zero being allocated for that hazard perception test clip. Clicking twice is permissable; but not too quickly.

Why was the Hazard Perception Test introduced?

Is the hazard perception test part of the theory test really necessary?

The Hazard Perception Test.  Some hazards are more obvious than others.  The hazard perception test tests all sorts of developing hazards.  The Hazard Perception Test.

The government is committed to reducing the numbers killed and seriously injured on Britain's roads by 40% by 2010. The hazard perception test element was introduced into the driving test in November 2002 as one of the measures that should help achieve this target by encouraging appropriate training in raising perception of scanning the road for hazards, recognising at the first opportunity from the clues that a potentially hazardous situation might arise and adopting a driving plan to reduce the risk. The hazard perception test is part of this strategy.

New drivers are disproportionately involved in accidents because of their lack of hazard perception, especially in the first months after passing a driving test. It has been proven that drivers who have taken hazard perception test training have much better hazard perception skills. The hazard perception test helps.

It is also worth pointing out that during the development of the test of hazard perception, the DSA worked closely with colleagues from the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) and the road safety division of the Department for Transport, both of whom thought that this hazard perception test was suitable for testing the hazard awareness skills of all drivers.

How will my hazard perception test be scored?

It helps if you understand the scoring for the hazard perception test

Hazard Perception Test. The video clips for the hazard perception test are shot from a video camera suspended from the roof inside the car.   Hazard Perception Test.

The maximum you can score for each developing hazard during the hazard perception test is five points. If you respond throughout the developing hazard and score different points you will always score the highest number of points per test hazard, ie if you react to the hazard and score five then three then two points during the test clip you will be awarded five points for that hazard perception test clip.

You will not be able to review your answers to the hazard perception test clip; as on the road, you will only have one chance to respond to the developing hazard in the test, so you will need to concentrate throughout each hazard perception test clip.

If you react inappropriately to a hazard during the hazard perception test video clip by clicking continuously throughout the test clip or in a pattern of responses you will score zero for that particular test clip. At the end of the hazard perception test clip a pop-up box will appear informing you that you have scored zero for that particular hazard perception test clip.

How does the hazard perception test work?

Understanding the principles behind the hazard perception test

Hazard Perception Test.  Every day circumstances are liable to become hazards during the hazard perception test.  Hazard Perception Test.

The hazard perception test part of the theory test is delivered on a computer and you respond by clicking a button on the mouse. You will be presented with a series of fourteen hazard perception test video clips which feature every day road scenes. In each test clip there will be at least one developing hazard, but one of the hazard perception test clips will feature two testable developing hazards.

To achieve a high score on the hazard perception test you will need to respond to the developing hazard during the early part of its development. The maximum you can score on each hazard perception test clip is five.

In this hazard perception test clip between the motorcyclist and the pedestrian, in the distance, you can see a young cyclist coming towards you on the footpath. This situation as it stands is not markable. This young cyclist becomes a developing hazard when they turn towards the road with the intention of crossing it. let's face it, will they stop? This is the point at which the test marking window opens.

The sooner you click after this point in the hazard perception test
the more likely that you are to score the minimum five points for this
particular hazard perception test clip.

You do need to pass both parts of the theory and hazard perception test on the same day. If you pass only one part of the test be it the theory or hazard perception test part then you will have to return to take both the theory test and the hazard perception test again.

When you have passed both the theory and hazard perception test you will be given a theory test pass certificate which is valid for two years from its date of issue. Keep your theory test pass certificate in a safe place with your provisional driving licence. This test pass certificate must be produced when you attend for your driving test

All the best with your DSA hazard perception test, car
