Hazard perception test gets CGI treatment

Author: Bike Social Posted: 18 Dec 2014


The new test is much clearer

The DVLA's hazard perception test will be updated with computer-generated imagery (CGI) clips from early next year in order to bring them up to date.

The test, in which participants detect hazards in clips of everyday motoring situations, is a mandatory part of the motorcycle licence theory test.

It is curently comprised of clips filmed from a dashboard camera, which are dated and the imagery quality is poor.

The new CGI clips will show the same every day situations as before but will look much clearer on the screen and feature more modern vehicles and surroundings.

There will be no change to how the test works and the pass mark will remain the same for both motorcycle and car tests.
