Theory Training | Leicester

Before you can take or even apply for your driving test, all provisional license holders need to take and pass the Theory and Hazard Perception test. You can take your theory test from the day of your 17th Birthday. You must pass both parts to pass. The first test is the theory test which is all multiple choice, and the second part is the hazard perception test where you will see 14 video clips with each clip containing a hazard (one clip has two hazards). You must click on the screen when you think you see the hazard developing. Please watch both of the videos on this page to find out more about your theory test.

Hazard Perception | Leicester

To find out exactly how the hazard perception test takes place and what's involved, please watch the hazard perception video on this page. Alternatevly, here is some information which you should know. Before you take the hazard perception test, you will shown a short video about how it works. You will then be played 14 video clips. The clips feature everyday road scenes and in each clip there will be at least one developing hazard, but one of the clips contain two developing hazards. It's your job to click on the screen when you think you see the hazard developing. You score higher points (5) for spotting and clicking when the hazard starts to happen. The later you see the hazard then the lower score you will get.

What is a Hazard? - A hazard is something that would involve you take action, like changing speed or direction. As an example, A car is parked at the side of the road and isn’t doing anything. It wouldn’t cause you to take action, so it’s not a developing hazard. When you get closer, the car’s right-hand indicator starts to flash and it starts to move away. You’d need to slow down, so it’s now a developing hazard.
