HAZARD PERCEPTION TEST

YOU CAN HAVE A BREAK OF UP TO 3 MINUTES BEFORE THE HAZARD PERCEPTION TEST STARTS.

YOU'LL THEN WATCH 14 VIDEO CLIPS.

THE CLIPS WILL:

  • FEATURE EVERYDAY ROAD SCENES

  • CONTAIN AT LEAST ONE 'DEVELOPING HAZARD' - BUT ONE OF THE CLIPS FEATURES 2 DEVELOPING HAZARDS.

YOU CAN SCORE UP TO 5 POINTS FOR EACH DEVELOPING HAZARD. TO GET A HIGH SCORE, CLICK THE MOUSE AS SOON AS YOU SEE THE HAZARD STARTING TO DEVELOP.

YOU DO NOT LOSE POINTS IF YOU CLICK AND GET IT WRONG. HOWEVER, YOU WILL NOT SCORE ANYTHING IF YOU CLICK CONTINUOUSLY OR IN A PATTERN.

IN ORDER TO PASS THIS PART OF THE TEST, YOU WILL NEED TO SCORE 44 OUT OF 75 OVER THE 14 CLIPS.
