Product Description

Hazard perception is a vital skill you need to ensure you stay safe on the roads. A key part of driving tests, this DVD using the official DSA video clips helps learner motorists increase their awareness of potential hazards, test their recognition and response to hazards in real time and prepares them for their theory and practical tests.

I bought this DVD as part of the official DSA learner pack which also included the theory test CD-ROM and the Prepare for the Practical Test DVD.

To be honest I was disappointed with the Hazard Perception DVD as it only had ten clips on which to practice (which was not enough to really get the hang of when to click to spot the hazard). Nor did it review the clips afterwards to show you where you would click to get the maximum points. I would not have been confident going into my theory test without additional software.

Instead I bought the Driving Test Success Hazard Perception which had 400 video clips (of which I probably used about 150 in my preparation) and properly reviewed each clip afterwards showing you where the boundary lay between getting a 5 and a 1.

I went on to pass the hazard perception part of the test with a score of 65/75 - one which not have been so high if I had only used the DVD above!

I was hoping for some practical advice for my up coming hazard perception test for my LGV licence, something that would let me know what to expect and some guidance on how/what is judged as a hazard. I was always told that anything on the road or near by was a potential hazard, you have to be ready for anything.

But maybe that's different now from when I learned to drive, because the hazards on this dvd are debatable to say the least, and all it has done has got me worried because unless you see the tape the same way as the person who designed it, then you won't get the same answers.

For instance apparently a farm building should be considered a hazard, because there might be farm traffic around. I'm sorry but as far as driving in the real world goes you might as well be clicking on the sky in case of the hazard of alien abduction.

The videos on the dvd only apply to the practical test, the practice videos are too few and don't have any guide as to why you are right or wrong. Basically you learn nothing, and in my case it just makes you feel worse.

I got this because I thought the official DSA disc would be the most useful (as is the case with the theory test disc which is great) but its actually pretty useless on its own.

It is fine for explaining what a hazard is and the overview is ok. As a learning tool alongside my driving lessons it was handy as a total beginner.

But as a tool to prepare you for the Hazard perception test it is really counterproductive on its own. At no point does it tell you what they are actually looking for on the test, how its presented or most importantly what they are marking you on! It doesnt tell you that you are marked on the speed of your response to developing hazards.

It only gives ten practice clips (which is not even as many as in an actual test). It gives you a mark, but doesnt explain what it is marking you on, and the review of the clip shows a selection of potential hazards (not even all of them) that could have developed. It does show the developing hazard in red, but does not explain that you are marked on the speed of your reaction to this, and that the others are clues. You dont get marks for them at all.

Its fine to get this in a pack with the theory test and other materials as it doesn't then cost much. But dont buy it thinking its going to give you what you need to pass the test. It doesn't.

I was puzzling over it for ages, and putting off taking my test because the hazard perception part seemed so baffling. It was this confusing disc holding me back.

Eventually, I decided to buy a third party disc just to try for some practice, but found enough information and free tests online to get the hang of it very quickly, took the test within a week and passed first time. It really isn't as baffling as this product makes you think.

I took my test for a full car license several years ago, way before all these new fangled theory tests were brought in, but in the grip of my midlife crisis I decided to learn to ride a motorbike.

So I needed to brush up on the theory test for bikes and the hazard perception test. This was the only product I found dealing with the hazard perception part of the test.

Being unable to compare it with anything else makes objective comment a little difficult, but I didn't find the DVD much use at all.

That said, I'm not sure it's necessarily the DVD's fault - I think the hazard perception test itself is poorly presented and unclear in what exactly is being measured (I passed it first time, by the way, so this isn't sour grapes). Even after watching this DVD, taking the mock tests (which require you to click the OK button on your DVD remote when you spot a hazard) and then taking the real test, I'm still unclear what I could have done to ensure a perfect score.

That's really my gripe - I didn't feel sufficiently confident after running through this DVD that I knew exactly how I was going to be marked in the real test.

But maybe that's my problem, not this product's.

Final conclusion: worth getting because it won't do any harm and might do some good. And you get to watch Suzi Perry presenting the bits between the clips. I'd borrow this or buy it cheaper second hand if I were you.
