DVSA Hazard PerceptionThe driving test features a vital Hazard Perception element.
DVSA Hazard Perception Test
Throughout the time on your lessons with Maidstone Driving Academy, all elements of the DVSA Hazard Perception Test will be discussed and explained. The Safe Driving For Life website gives you the opportunity to take a Free Hazard Perception Test online so you can see how it works.
Learner drivers will need to do more revision and practice to ensure the best chance of passing. We recommend that you use the official study materials listed below.
- You can practise with 3 clips for free. The clips feature everyday road scenes and contain one ‘developing hazard’.
- You get points for spotting the developing hazards as soon as they start to happen.
- A developing hazard is something that would cause you to take action, like changing speed or direction.
- You can score up to 5 points for each developing hazard. You need to get 9 points or more in total to pass the demo tests. In the real test, you’ll need to score at least 44 out of 75 (59%).
- To get a high score, click or tap as soon as you see the hazard starting to develop.
- You don’t lose points if you click and get it wrong. However, you shouldn’t click continuously or in a pattern (in the real test you will fail if you do this).
This free hazard perception test is just for practice. You can get instant online access to more than 100 additional hazard perception clips – and all the official car, LGV and PCV revision questions – at www.dvsalearningzone.co.uk. It works on your smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer. Click the button below to get started with the official practice test.

I cannot recommend Peter enough! His patient manner and understanding of each individual is beyond commendable, and the manner in which he instills confidence in yourself and helps you to push through any nerves you may have! I now have the freedom I so desperately wanted, and a new experience to enjoy, and for that I cannot thank him enough.
