Hazard perception test is the second part of the UK theory test. DVLA theory test is a mandatory test which all UK learner drivers must pass to obtain a full driving licence. The test includes multiple-choice questions and hazard perception clips. Here you can find information about hazard perception test. Also we provide some free hazard perception test practices.
What is a 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.

When qualifying as an approved driving instructor you need to score at least 57 points out of 75 to pass the ADI hazard perception test. Bus and LGV hazard perception test pass mark is 67/100 and the test contains 19 CGI clips. DVSA hazard perception test is available here: www.theorytest.org

Hazard perception CGI
What does "hazard perception CGI" mean? CGI comes from Computer-Generated Imagery. CGI clips replaced the old filmed hazard clips in the hazard perception part of the theory test on 13 Jan 2015. The reason why they changed filmed clips to CGI clips was that the image quality wasn’t clear enough.
Differences between old and new hazard perception CGI clips
Here you can see a picture where on the right is an updated hazard perception CGI clip.
These new CGI clips looks clearer than the old ones. Even the clips are now CGI, there are no other changes in the test.
Watch this introduction, and you are more likely to spot the developing hazards:

What is a developing hazard?
Developing hazard is something that may result in you having to take some action while driving your vehicle. The action can be for example changing your speed or direction.
There are many ways to practise for the UK theory test. You can use theory test practice website, purchase a book or take lessons from a driving instructor.
If you want to pass your theory test, it is highly recommended to practise for the theory test using websites which offer theory test practices.
The reason is that the websites usually have the latest DVSA made questions. If you purchase a DVD or a book, it might have already outdated questions.
For example this year, DVSA has been updating the revision questions many times, so the books or DVS:s issued earlier this year might be already old.
Which website to choose for theory test practising?
This is a tricky part because there are so many websites providing theory test practices, but only a few of them have the official DVSA revision questions.
A website which offers the DVSA revision questions is the best possible option because the questions are almost same as in the official test.
Also make sure the site has the DVSA hazard perception clips because just practising multiple-choice question is not enough to pass the whole theory test.
Also remember, there are no websites which offer exactly same questions as in the official test because the official questions are not public.
To make sure you are using the best available practising material:
Use websites because:
- You don't need to install anything
- You can use the practice on any of your devices. A mobile app needs to be purchased separately to all your different devices.
- The website is better for practising Hazard perception test because you can use a bigger screen. With the mobile app, you screen size is limited.
Use only websites which have the DVSA revision material
- DVSA revision questions are the closest ones to the real test
- DVSA revision questions are made by the DVSA
- There are many completely free websites but none of them offers DVSA made revision questions because it is not allowed by DVSA
So your next step could be just to go and search a website which has the DVSA revision questions and Hazard perception test and you can make sure you are practising with the most up to date material.
If you are still sure you want to use old fashion DVD, here is our recommendation:
Purchase this official DVSA theory test kit and you have the latest DVSA material. DVD player required.
To practise for the theory test using a website, use the theorytest.org which contains all the official DVSA materials.
