Hazard Perception goes against safe driving? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Does anyone agree that the hazard perception is aimed at inexperienced drivers?

    It seems to only be possible to pass if you click late or a crazy amount of times per clip. I'm unsure whether it's because someone else is driving in the clip so you don't need to factor in thinking and reaction times, but surely they're teaching drivers to brake too late. I've looked at some cases on hazard perception where a driver would score 3 (3 on a clip would pass) but in real life there would defiantly be a crash or very sharp braking.

    I think if as long as the hazard is spotted and the driver would brake in enough time why should they be discriminated against for clicking to early.

    (I have wrote this because for some reason i cant pass my hazard, although I've scored highly on the questions)

    The test just doesn't seem true to actual driving. I've tried clicking later but it's so hard to go against instinct on when i would brake in an actual situation, i feel like it's going to make me more dangerous by retraining myself to react late.

    Anyone agree with me or have advice on how they passed?

    Well of course it's aimed at inexperienced drivers, hence why you need to pass it before you can drive on your own

    As for it's usefulness.

    I personally think it is a steaming pile of horse ****. The quality of the videos have always been criminally poor (although I know they are improving this by creating CGI scenarios).

    Dropping points because you didn't click the same time as someone else, despite making no credible difference to the outcome of the perceived hazard is bull****.
