A Class HGV Driver Training Hazard Perception test.

Part of the LGV Training process is to pass the Hazard Perception test.

The Hazard Perception test will consist of a series of film clips, shown from a driver's point of view. Before you start this test, you will be shown a short tutorial video that explains how the test works and gives you a chance to see a sample film clip. This will help you understand what you will need to do.

During the test you will be shown 19 film clips, each clip contains 1 or more developing hazards. You should respond by pressing the mouse button as soon as you see a hazard developing that may result in you, the driver, having to take some action, such as changing speed or direction. There are 20 scorable hazards in total.

Every time you click, a red flag will appear on the bottom of your screen in order to show your hazard has been noted. In order to pass this test you will need to score at least 67 out of 100.

What is a Hazard?

In simple terms although you will see what you might consider to be a hazard during the video the real hazards are things that will make you change speed, direction or even stop. Identifying these hazard early will score you more points.

Obvious Hazards

  • Indicators on vehicle
  • Break lights on vehicle
  • vehicle on a junction
  • Traffic lights / Padestrian crossing
  • Padestrians looking to cross the road
  • All of the above will make you change speed, direction or even stop
