I've just tried hazard perception... failed.. fk brilliant.. 10 years on road (coach and hgv) no accidents and I'm not roadworthy
The full programme is free via your local library. Sign up online and you get access to complete mock tests and revision etc, this includes multiple hazzard clips. This is where I'm struggling, clicking too early or too late!

What an amazing e-commerce website.
Someone incredibly clever must have done that using a platform they’d never used before.
12 years on and I passed 😁
Great

Didnt realise that. Bought the driving success app for £4.99 last week, could have saved myself some money. The sodding hazard perception test is argghh. I did a mock test on that and scored 0 on one of them and couldnt understand why until I reviewed the video. It circled the lollipop person yellow and i clicked a second after that, which was a second or two, too early, so I didnt get the point as it wasn't a developing hazard, and circled red in the review. :|.
Have my theory test booked though for next month, so plenty of time to practice them more to get the hang of when is just right to click

Good Luck with the theory test
Hazard = Anything that will cause you as the driver to change speed or direction.

Hazard perception test is looking for you to spot the...

*developing* hazard

Tip: You need to recognise the 'clue' that will eventually (rather quickly) develop into an actual hazard.

If a cyclist is riding in front of you and in front of them are parked vehicles... They then look over their right shoulder and after a second or two they...?

What's the hazard? And how did you know (clue)?

yes but mostly the hazard is the muppet that is behind you who cannot see more than 2 feet in front of there car,the cyclist in front of you is normally not the problem,and no cyclist i know ever looks over there shoulder because they think they own the road,unless you mean motor cyclists and that is different,as i say a pointless test that does not reflect everyday driving-looks good on a computer screen and nothing else

In UK there should be a lot more practical test (some proper driving schools would be helpful ), and a lot more parking cases on the exams. I've passed my driving licence outside UK and then PSV and HGV here... and I must admit the test here is a joke A lot of safety, careful driving etc (that's good) but unfortunately most of the drivers passing the test are unable to show basic driving skils (Efficient driving, motorways!!, reverse parking seems to be a task beyond capability of most drivers :D.

To cheer you all up.. Ukrainian or Lithuanian lorry drivers are still leading in the world's most likely reckless drivers competition (at least in this part of the world)

The hazard being the muppet close behind etc is true, that's why when you see the problem ahead nice and early you can start to react to it gently and a lot sooner which controls the muppet behind from coming in the back of your vehicle. And although it would be the muppet's fault safety is more important right? In the hazard perception test the clicking of the mouse signifies checking the mirrors which all ties in. Whether they explain that well enough or not is a different thing and as a driving instructor I have found that there is a lot of misunderstanding with pupils when it comes to the hazard perception test until I explain it.

As for you not knowing any cyclist checking over their shoulder, then that's just subjective and it's not everyone's experience. Many don't of course but also in my experience many do. I never said they all do to be honest anyway. I was just trying to be helpful to some of the commenters.

Also the test being pointless might be true but it's what is on offer and needs passing along with the other tests to be a passed driver in the UK.


I do believe it can be quite hard to change some peoples' attitudes with regards to driving though.
