About hazard perception tests
Changes to the test
From Monday 29 March 2021, all learner drivers regardless of their age, must complete and pass the hazard perception test.
A new hazard perception test specific for motorcycle learner licence holders is now available.
The hazard perception tests are an online test containing a series of high-quality 3D computer generated clips. We recommend taking the test on a laptop or desktop computer, due to the bigger screen. You can take the test on any other compatible device. If you are doing the test on your mobile, you will need to be able to clearly see the screen.
To pass the hazard perception test you need to demonstrate your ability to identify hazards through watching and reacting to situations. The hazards you will be tested on are based on the most challenging for novice drivers and riders.
There are 2 types of hazard perception tests:
Before you start a test
Once you have enrolled in the test, you will find instructions on how to complete the test.
A practice test is available before you begin and you can practice as many times as you like.
When you are ready, set aside some time to focus on the test. You must complete your hazard perception test in one sitting, you can’t save your progress.
You can attempt the test as many times as you like. There is no lock out period between attempts.
When you pass the test you will get an email confirmation and information on how to progress to the next licence stage.
