The Hazard Perception Test (HPT) is a computer-based test that assesses your ability to recognise and react appropriately to potentially dangerous traffic situations. The test is made up of clips of real traffic situations that contain hazards to which you will be asked to respond. Each video contains only 1 hazard.
In the film clips you see what the driver sees and will need to click on the road user involved in the traffic hazard as soon as possible if and when you think an action is required. Your response is timed and your reaction time affects your result, so react when necessary and do it quickly, just as you would in a real life traffic situation. Also, just like real driving where you only get one chance to respond to a situation, you will only be allowed to see each item once and cannot change your response once submitted. Remember that you are not being asked trick questions. When an action is required it will be obvious. Remain calm, alert and don't be afraid to act. Your years of driving experience and the practice tests here have prepared you well for this test.
If you click a road user during a clip a yellow circle will appear – indicating the computer has recorded your response. The film clip may run for another few seconds, but there is no need to click again.
There is an instruction video and practice questions available at the beginning of the HPT. Use these resources carefully so you are aware of the test conditions and what is required in the real HPT.
