New Hazard Perception Test In 2013

The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) has confirmed that they are in the process of updating the clips to in the Hazard Perception Test, with the aim of introducing them into the second part of the Theory Test by the end of 2013. They will be developing Computer Generated (CGI) clips, which means the DSA can introduce new hazards that would be difficult to film safely. Particularly, clips involving vulnerable road users.

The current hazard perception clips were introduced into the Theory Test in November 2002 and were created by filming developing hazards in a variety of road and traffic situations using a specially adapted car. Due to the advances in technology, although the hazards in each of the clips are still relevant, the image quality is not as clear or defined as is available today.

The DSA wants people to take a look at the samples they have created of the new computer generated hazard perception clips. These are only early tests so may change from the samples they have released.
