The Hazard Perception Test @ Warrington Driving School

The worlds first test to use film footage to assess a driver's ability to identify potential road dangers. The new hazard perception test will form part of the current screen based theory test. A failure to pass either the existing multiple choice section or the hazard perception test will result in failure of the whole test. The hazard perception test comprises of a selection of film clips, showing real road scenes and potential hazards. People sitting the test will be assessed on how soon they spot the dangers. Each candidate will be tested on 14 film clips chosen at random from a bank of 200.

The test will show a road scene and the candidate must click a mouse button when they see a developing hazard. As each film clip may contain more than one hazard it is important for the candidate to keep concentrating till the end of the clip.

Each hazard has a maximum score of 5 marks, out of the 14 video clips there will be 15 hazards to give a maximum score of 75 marks. The pass marks will be phased in starting at 38 for car, moped and motorcycle tests, rising to 44 by September 2003.
