Hazard perception finally gets a makeover

Theory test updates

The hazard perception test's CGI makeover - pretty cool, huh?

When I took my theory test I couldn't believe how low quality the hazard perception videos were. It's hard to do your best when you're peering at grainy videos that look like footage from an old cop show.

Welcome to the 21st century

So here's some great news: the DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency) is introducing new, super-realistic CGI videos into the theory test any time from now.

The hazard perception test itself isn't changing and the scoring will be the same, but I think it'll now be much easier to concentrate on clicking the hazards as they change.

Take a look at the new video style:


If you're taking your theory test in the next few months, let us know if you come across the new, improved videos!
