The hazard perception part of the test


After taking the theory (multiple choice) part of the test a break of up to three minutes is allowed,  You will be shown a tutorial video about the Hazard perception part of the test. This uses sample video with a sound track (headphones supplied), which will explain how to complete this part of the test. You may repeat the tutorial once  if you wish.

The test consists of 14 video clips, each lasting about one minute. The clips feature various types of hazards, such as vehicles, pedestrians and road conditions. You should respond by pressing a mouse button as soon as you see a hazard developing that may result in the driver having to take some action, such as changing speed or direction. The earlier the developing hazard is spotted, and a response made, the higher the score.

Candidates can score up to five marks on each hazard and the test contains 15 scoreable hazards. There are also many other hazards which the DSA do not consider as scoring hazards, you will NOT be penalised for identifying these hazards

The pass mark for this part of the test is 44 out of 75 for car drivers and motorcycle riders.

Candidates are given their results when they have finished both parts of the test and have returned to the waiting room.

YOU MUST PASS BOTH PARTS OF THE TEST IN THE SAME SESSION TO PASS
