Before you start the hazard perception test, you’ll be shown a video about how it works.
You’ll then watch 14 video clips. The clips:
You get points for spotting the developing hazards as soon as they start to happen.
A developing hazard is something that would cause you to take action, like changing speed or direction.
Example A car is parked at the side of the road and isn’t doing anything. It wouldn’t cause you to take action, so it’s not a developing hazard.
When you get closer, the car’s right-hand indicator starts to flash and it starts to move away. You’d need to slow down, so it’s now a developing hazard.
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 don’t lose points if you click and get it wrong. However, you won’t score anything if you click continuously or in a pattern.
You only get one attempt at each clip. You can’t review or change your responses.

Pass mark and test result
You’ll get the result at the test centre after taking the theory test. You must pass both parts to pass the test.
|Test part||Pass mark||Points available|
You’ll get a letter with a pass certificate number at the test centre. You need this when you book and take your driving test.
Your pass certificate number lasts for 2 years. You must pass your driving test in that time, otherwise you’ll have to pass the theory test again.
You’ll get a letter at the test centre. It’ll tell you which parts you didn’t score enough points on so you know what to practise.
You must book and take the full test again, even if you passed one part this time.
You have to wait at least 3 working days before taking your test again.
