The hazard perception part of the theory test now includes clips to test a learner driver’s ability to spot developing hazards in different weather conditions
The hazard perception part of the theory test assesses the ability to spot ‘developing hazards’. These are things that would cause drivers to take action, like changing speed or direction.
In the theory test, you have to spot developing hazards in 14 video clips. You get points for spotting the developing hazards as soon as they start to happen.
The clips now include scenarios including driving in:
- snow and ice
Some new clips also show driving at night and in low-light conditions, like dawn and dusk.
These new clips will also be added to:
- motorcycle theory tests from December 2018
- lorry, bus and coach theory tests from early 2019
- approved driving instructor (ADI) part 1 tests and Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) enhanced rider scheme trainer theory tests from early 2019
Why the new types of clips are being introduced
