About hazard perception tests

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.
