What is Hazard Perception Test?

Learners will watch fourteen one minute long hazard perception test video clips (nineteen clips for lorry and bus candidates). Hazard perception clips are computer generated imagery (CGI) and filmed from the perspective of a passenger car driver.

Learners have to indicate, usually by clicking a mouse button or touching the screen, when they observe a developing hazard. All of the hazard perception clips will include one developing hazard, and one will include 2 hazards. The sooner the student reacts to a developing hazard, the more points are scored. Points are from five down to one, with no score if the examinee reacts too late. Maximum possible score is 75 (100 points for lorry and bus hazard perception tests). The pass mark is 44 (58.6%) for car drivers and motorcyclists and 57 when qualifying as an approved Driving Instructor. Bus and Lorry drivers must score 67 out of 100.

I would like to say that this site is really helpful and really good for passing my theory test thank you so much for this lovely site.

Well I've had a full car linence since 1988 and a full motorcycle licence since 1996 however, I need to do the Hazard perception & Theory tests as I am imminently training to drive LGV.
The problem I have with the hazard perception test is that as a motorcyclist, I'm seeing and reacting to hazards long before the DVLA's scoring "window" opens, I'm seeing hazards that are very real to me but not the ones they want me to see so I have to be careful not to click too many times... it's just a nightmare, I really have doubts about whether I'm going to pass this first time.
I have made some videos about how I think these tests are not a fair representation of either someone's ability to avoid hazards or of their roadcraft in general and will maybe put those on youtube and post a link in the DVLA twitter feed.
I honestly think they are just a good way of getting the extra test fees for the re-takes.

I am also a biker and now doing a car licence. I also see hazards too early and while I consider myself a very aware rider (and car driver instructor confirmed) I have failed my hazard perception once already. I was shocked and re-taking test tomorrow

I know how you feel. I am not a biker but have been driving since I am 16 and was also shocked to see that I had failed the hazard perception. I was more worried about the multiple choice, which turned out I got 48/50 correct. The hazard perception test is very disciving, as at the begining they say that if you click too many times, the computer will think that you are just "clicking away" and you will be scored 0. There were a few occacions when I clicked on a potential hazard before the computer window opened, and therefore the computer did not recognize that I had already seen the hazard. Not a very good test and I am another £25 down.
