instructions on how the test works the chance to do some practice questions to get used to the screens.

A question and several possible answers appear on a screen. You have to select the right answer.

You do not have to use the full 1 hour and 55 minutes.

This test is currently £11.

Before you start the hazard perception test, you’ll be shown a video about how it works.

You’ll then watch 19 video clips.

The clips: feature everyday road scenes, contain at least one ‘developing hazard’ - but one of the clips features 2 developing hazards.
You get points for spotting the developing hazards as soon as they start to happen.

What a ‘developing hazard’ 
A developing hazard is something that would cause you to take action, like changing speed or direction.

Example
A car is parked at the side of the road and is not doing anything. It would not cause you to take action, so it’s not a developing hazard.

When you get closer, the car’s right-hand indicator starts to flash and it starts to move away. You’d need to slow down, so it’s now a developing hazard.

How the scoring works
You can score up to 5 points for each developing hazard.

To get a high score, click the mouse as soon as you see the hazard starting to develop.

You do not lose points if you click and get it wrong. However, you will not score anything if you click continuously or in a pattern.

You only get one attempt at each clip. You cannot review or change your responses.

The pass mark for this part is 67 out of 100.

Your test result
You’ll be given a letter at the test centre with the results for the part of the theory test you’ve just taken.

When you’ve passed both parts, your theory test certificate will be posted to you. You need this when you book your Driver CPC part 3 driving test.

IMPORTANT. Your theory test certificate is valid for 2 years from when you passed the first part of the test.

You need to pass the Driver CPC part 3 driving test within 2 years, otherwise you’ll have to pass the part 1 theory test again.
