failed hazard perception test
The practice test allows you to attempt examples that are like the actual HPT. This will give you some practice on what to look out for in the test, as well as get a feel for how the test functions.
The Hazard Perception Test (HPT) is an online computerised test that measures a person’s ability to detect and respond to potentially dangerous situations on the road. Research shows the value of HPT in predicting subsequent crash risk, including some evidence that found those drivers who failed HPT at least twice were more likely to be involved in a crash compared to those who passed on their first attempt.
The Hazard Perception Test (HPT) is a practical, computer-based test. To get an idea of what the test will look like and how you will interact with the touch screen you should not just rely on the 3 online simulations provided by the Department of Transport. Although these examples feature real traffic clips and instructions like the real test, they do not provide enough variety to effectively prepare you for the HPT.
This is the number one (and essentially only) resource to practically prepare for the HPT. You can find links to the practice tests and Driving Test WA commentary on the appropriate responses here.
You’ll get a letter with a pass certificate number at the test centre. You need this when you book and take your driving test.
You must book and take the full test again, even if you passed one part this time.
Got a second wind & gave this DVD a go. I’m glad I did!
I failed my hazard protection twice a few years ago & gave up.
