Take a free practice hazard perception test

This test has 3 clips, each with 1 developing hazard.

Tap or click the video when you feel you’re encountering a developing hazard. This is something that would cause you to take some form of action, such as changing speed or direction. A red flag will appear at the bottom of the screen to show your response.

You can score up to 5 points for each developing hazard. The earlier you recognise and respond to the hazard, the more points you'll receive.
