Hazard Perception Clips Get a Modern Makeover

The hazard perception part of the driving theory test has been updated using computer generated imagery (CGI). This will help ensure candidates' awareness of risk is tested in modern driving environments that are more like real world situations.

Filmed video clips have been used since 2002 to test candidates' reactions to developing hazards on the road. While the scenarios in these clips were still relevant, the image quality wasn't as clear or as defined as modern digital technology allows.

New CGI clips were introduced to the test on 12 January 2015. These new clips show the same situations as the filmed clips, but are clearer on the screen and include updated vehicles, roads and surroundings to reflect modern day driving.

Using CGI will also allow new clips to be developed that include a wider range of hazards, for example including situations with vulnerable road users like children or cyclists that would previously have been difficult to film. Future CGI clips will also include a range of driving conditions, such as night time driving or driving in bad weather.
