The Hazard Perception Test is part of the Theory Test. After you have completed the multichoice question part of the test, the Hazard Perception element of the test will begin.

You get 14 clips of film, with 15 hazards in total which you need to identify by clicking your mouse button at the appropriate time. The aim is not so much to identify every hazard but rather to identify the "developing hazard".

This could be described as a hazard that is becoming more of a hazard and is requiring you to take action. When clicking the mouse you do not have to move the cursor over the hazard.

Hazard Perception

You can score a maximum of 5 points for each developing hazard, with a maximum of 75 marks for the test in total. The pass mark is 44 out of 75. You are expected to click more than once on any given clip of film but if you click too many times, or in a pattern that the programme thinks means that you are clicking randomly, then you will score nil for that particular hazard. You have to pass both parts of the test together.

The best way to learn for the Hazard Perception Test is to use the software produced under the title "Driving Test Success". Although you may be very good at spotting hazards in real life driving, it is as well to practice doing some theory test video clips that will help prepare you for the test situation.

The DVSA policy is now that the they will no longer publish all the questions used in the actual theory test. Instead they provide an official theory test revision question bank that includes questions similar to but not identical to the actual quaestions on the test.

The reason behind this is to ensure that people don't just learn the answers parrot fashion but are able to think through the theory test questions and come to the best answer.

Because the actual theory test questions are not published it does make it more difficult to keep track of which questions are being used and which are now out of date. It is important though if you are using free mock theory test questions that you are using the official questions.

It is DVSA rather than DVLA theory test questions that you need. DVLA are responsible for licencing but not testing.
