Hazard Perception Practice Test 2024Beta

The Hazard Perception Test is a part of the theory exam. It requires you to view 14 hazard video clips on the computer screen of approximately one minute each. You are required to watch these clips as if you were the driver. There will be 15 hazards to find -- at least one on each clip. However, one clip will have 2 hazards. The hazards could be vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, roadworks, mobile hazards, and animals.

How many clicks are you allowed on hazard perception?

Do not click more than 5-10 times per clip. (The most common mistake is too many clicks.)

What score do you need to pass hazard perception?

You can score between 0 and 5 on each hazard.

How do you pass the hazard perception test?

Don’t click too much. Click (or touch the screen) only as soon as you see the hazard. But don’t wait too long. Click as soon as you notice a potential hazard -- it’s likely that it’ll turn into a developing hazard.

What do I need to do?

  • Watch each of the 14 video clips.
  • Click whenever you think you can see a developing hazard (one or two in each clip).
  • Make sure you click/tap on the developing hazard itself.
  • Once you’ve properly identified the hazard, you’ll see a frame around it.
  • The speed at which you identify the hazard as it develops will determine your score for that particular clip.

(Depending on your internet speed the video may appear grainy for the first few seconds while your browser buffers it. It should play perfectly well right after that.)

What’s a “Developing hazard”?

A developing hazard is something that may result in you, the driver, having to take some action, like changing speed or direction. You only get points when you spot the developing hazards as soon as they start to happen.

This Hazard Perception practice test is made possible with the help of the J Utah project.

This free practice hazard perception test lets you experience how the actual test works. To give yourself the best chance of passing, take it several times. We recommend that you also use the official study materials such as the Highway Code, as well as our practice tests.
