This is the second part of the UK driving theory test. The Hazard Perception test is designed to assess how well you react to dangers you could face while driving in real life. It consists of 14 video clips, where each video shows a day to day road scene. 13 out of 14 clips contain only one developing hazard, on the other hand one of the 14 clips contains two developing hazards. Depending on the pace of your reaction towards the developing hazards, you can score up to 5 points per hazard.

The clips you will see in the hazard perception test will contain developing as well as potential hazards. A potential hazard is something you need to know about, but it does not necessarily require you to take action. On the other hand, a developing hazard is a situation that would require you to take some action, these could be, slowing down the vehicle, stopping or changing the direction etc.

The best revision for the hazard perception test is to practice by watching the clips provided on our website. Practice as much as you can, before taking the test. Make sure that you have taken enough mock tests, before paying for the actual exam. Register with www.ukdrivetest.com to get extra mock clips.

  • For this part of the test you only have to focus on your existing knowledge of danger, as this test will only test your reaction time towards hazards.

  • The moment you see a developing hazard click on the mouse to minimize your reaction time.

  • Do click fast, but don’t click continuously as you may end up receiving zero marks for this action, considered cheating.

  • Pedestrians, who are going to cross the road

  • Cars stopping in front of you

  • Buses going away from the bus stop

  • Merging vehicles

  • Turning vehicles

  • Stopping vehicles

  • Parked vehicles with hazards lights on

  • Cyclists and pedestrians

The clips used in the Hazard Perception part of the theory test are the same for all vehicles. However, the numbers of clips for each type of vehicle changes.
