must answer at least 43of them correctly to pass this section.
You have 50minutes to answer all the questions. To answer simply touch

1 answer so read the question carefully.
Hazard Perception Test
This section is taken after the multiple choice section and this time
you will use a computer mouse to register the hazard. The test contains
15 clips each around one minute long, 13 of the clips contain one scorable
hazard and two clips contain 2 scorable hazards. As soon as you see
a hazard you must click the left mouse button, on each clip there will
be other hazards so don’t be afraid to click on additional hazards
as you will not be penalised.
N.B. If the system thinks you are trying to cheat by clicking rythmatically
you will score 0 for that clip.
You must score at least 44 out of a maximum of 75 points to pass this
