HAZARD PERCEPTION PART
For this part of the test, you’ll be shown a series of video clips on a computer screen. The clips feature everyday road scenes and contain a developing hazard – one of the clips will feature two developing hazards.
A lot of people think there is a trick about when to click, but all you have to do is click when you spot the developing hazard.
The earlier you spot the hazard, the higher your score – you can score up to 5 marks per clip.
What is a developing hazard?
A developing hazard is something that may result in you having to take some action, such as changing speed or direction. So, a car parked on the side of the road ahead is not a developing hazard. It’s just a parked car. BUT if you see the indicator come on, you need to anticipate that the driver might be about to pull out. This is a developing hazard, so you’d click as soon as you spot the indicator. Simple!
You’ll be able to practice some clips with your Theory Test Pro subscription.
