About hazard perception test -

The hazard perception test tips are online computer-based tips, which measure driver's ability to anticipate and appropriately respond to potentially dangerous situations while driving.

In hazard perception test, you will see video clips of genuine, traffic scenes filmed from the driver's perspective. When you watch the clips, you need to imagine that you are the driver.

In each hazard clip there will be at least one developing hazard, but one of these clips will feature two developing hazards.

As early as you can, you will need to watch the clip carefully and try to predict the traffic hazard. you need to respond straight away, as soon as you predict that a traffic hazard is likely to happen. A traffic hazard is something that would require the driver to take some action like overtake, slow down or change course.

Rather the potential hazards, the hazard perception test are designed to get the candidate to identify 'Developing Hazards'.

For example: School sign is not a developing hazard, but if you see school children about to cross the road, then it becomes a developing hazard and needs to be identified.
