Hazard perception test available online

-

Statistics show that young and inexperien­ced drivers have a higher crash risk within the first 12 months of driving, and the Hazard Perception Test ensures they have the skills they need to make the transition to solo driving safely.

The online test is a computer-based test that assesses a driver’s ability to recognise and respond to potential hazards in the safest way possible, focusing on scenarios where probationa­ry drivers are more likely to be involved in a crash.

To be eligible to complete the Hazard Perception

Test, applicants must be at least 17 years and 11 months and have an Australian learner permit or have completed the Learner Permit Test within the last 12 months.

Learner drivers under the age of 21 should be close to getting their 120 hours of supervised driving experience before taking the Hazard Perception Test.

To access the Hazard Perception Test, customers will need to create a myVicRoads personal account and access a compatible device. Applicants then must respond to 25 driving scenarios within 45 minutes.
