    In terms of hours. Say you are a quick learner.
    I would just buy the book. If it's very intense you could do it in a day. Like I did, but I was exhausted the next day during the test. Do it over a week or two.

    I wouldn't spend any money on the hazard perception test DVD's. It's all common sense. Just read up on what hazards one would expect on the road (pedestrians, signs, crossings). And you'll get through it with ease.

    couldnt agree less with that, doing the dvd's is definately cutting out on undue hasstle. I did next to no revision but practiced the videos just to get in the swing of when to click, what they're expecting for marks and so on and so forth..

    Fair enough.

    Although I don't see where there is hassle. The process is straightforward common sense: see a hazard or a change in circumstances on the road and click. The clips so short their over before you know it.

    And I don't know of a single person who failed on the hazard perception test. It's always the multiple questions that stump people who haven't bothered to learn all of them.

    ah see to the contrary I know 8 people who've failled it first time.. yes its a simple concept but there can be a knack to knowing what sort of hazards they look for and how quickly they want them responded to - The DVD I had replayed the clips showing where I clicked and where I should have clicked and the first few times I was clicking before they thought a hazard was a hazard (totally stupid imo)

    The hasstle is in failing it for the sake of less than a tenner imo..

    I had no Idea that the HP element had that degree of fail rate nor that the DVD is so cheap. :woo:

    You make a convincing argument. :yy:
