Sorely lacking with the hazard perception
on 14 June 2012
I passed my theory test on Tuesday and used this as my learning tool. I passed first time (47/50 on questions and 60/75 for hazard perception).
The multiple choice questions are fantastic, you can study sections, then test yourself on those sections then do mock tests. i took 14 mock tests and passed 13 of them so the format really lets the information stick. I would say 80-90% of the questions i studied in the mock tests appeared exactly as they did on the real test. so this portion gets 5/5
The hazard perception is a joke. It doesnt give you a mock test, it doesnt tell you pass marks. The DVD sections are terrible dated (i swear i saw one car at least with a manual choke!) and it all needs a bit of modernising really. I couldnt understand when i was getting 0/5 on one video clip after getting 5/5 the previous attempt at it as it doesnt explain what you did wrong, just what you should have been spotting. What the DVD doesnt explain is how you are expected to click, luckily this all gets explained clearly in the actual test. So i would advise using this section to get a general idea of what the hazard perception test is like, but you cant use it to try and try again like you can with the multiple choice. This portion only gets 1/5
My advice would be to get just the theory test CD-Rom on its own (if possible) and then research other ways of practicing your hazard perception.
