Why is there a Hazard Perception Test

The statistics have long shown that the newer the driver, the more likely they are to be involved in accidents on the roads. This is probably because they are inexperienced as drivers, although they have passed their driving test. Like many things in life, experience is useful, and just by being on the road for a number of hours we develop our skills at driving and can become better drivers through additional practice of being on the road.

In the first few months after a driver has just passed their driving test, the driver may be particularly likely to be involved in accidents relative to more experienced road users.

This is where the hazard perception test comes in: it is designed to make learners, and the new drivers of the future, think about hazards and generally to be aware of what is on the road. The idea is that this will then help to reduce the number of accidents and those who are sadly killed or badly injured in road accidents in the UK.
