THE TEST HAS TWO PARTS
 
MULTIPLE CHOICE
Before you start there is a short tutorial shown on the computer screen, which will explain how the test should be undertaken. This gives you a chance to practice before starting the multiple choice. The test consists of multiple choice questions and a case study. You need to answer at least 43 correct from 50 questions. To select your answer touch the screen at the appropriate place. You' re given 57 minutes to complete this part of the test.
 
HAZARD PERCEPTION 
This section will start with a short tutorial shown on the computer screen. This explains how the test should be undertaken. Then you will be shown 14 clips, each one lasting approximately 1 minute. There are 15 hazards to find, at least one on each clip, so one clip will have 2 hazards. There is no sound on the clips. You can score up to 5 points for each hazard, depending on how quickly you spot them. The pass mark is 44 out of 75.
Go to the links page for sites where you can get useful information on the theory and practise both the multi choice and hazard perception so your ready for the day of your  test.
You need to pass both parts.
