Not as bad as other reviews might suggest,
This review is from: The Official DSA Guide to Hazard Perception [DVD] (DVD)
I was fortunate enough to be lent this DVD and in conjunction with the Theory CD passed my theory test first time around. That said, I am learning to ride a motorcycle as an experienced driver. The DVD progressively explains Hazards with a gradual emphasis on differentiating static hazards from Developing ones (ie ones which absolutely force a driver/rider to change speed or direction). This much is fairly obvious. I think to fully grasp the material it is worthwhile viewing 3 or 4 times to pick up on the subtleties and in spite of the narrators explaining that there is no benefit in resitting the example tests, I think it all reinforces the learning process so I would disagree.
However the major failing is not so much the lack of explanation of what a Developing Hazard is, it is more the very few practise clips available. Equally I am not convinced that the tests always register the responses accurately which sometimes makes you think that you have performed badly when in actual fact if you made the same decisions in the real test you would have been successful.
I would recommend if you are serious about passing your test that you get you hands on a copy of this DVD. I sat the test without any additional lessons since passing my driving test 16 years ago and all I can say is that it worked for me.
I hope this helps.
