During this test you will be sitting at a computer where you will be presented with a series of video clips.


You will need to correctly identify and respond to the developing hazard by clicking a button on the mouse.


Things to remember

  • You will only have one chance to respond to the developing hazard
  • You can score a maximum of 5 points for each hazard
  • A score in excess of 44 will be required to pass
  • The earlier you spot the developing hazard the higher your score
  • You can lose marks for responding before the hazard is developing
