I usually do around 3 clicks (once when I see it, and one about half a second after and one when it forces the driver to take action).

Will doing this consistently for every hazard I see get me disqualified?

Just do one when you see a potential hazard, when it develops/changes and when it's an issue.

I.E
Someone is walking to the road behind a parked car *click* (spotted potential hazard)
Starts walking to the edge of the car as if they're about to cross *click* (change/developing)
Continues walking to cross the road *click* (change/Hazard)
Then click when you'd take action. (reaction to hazard)

In other words, do what the test tells you... You won't be scored 0 for clicking a fair amount of times. You can be scored a 0 for clicking in a pattern to try and cheat the test.

Can't remember the exact score I got, but I definitely remember getting somewhere in the high 60's for HP.

E- Just did LDCs HP test and got 67.

Thanks Spratty just slightly confused as I can click up to 7 times before I get the red cross on the DVSA test site, Not that I will be clicking that may times just wanting to know the limit. I did 1 2 3 pause 1 2 and 1 2 3 again before the red cross saying too many clicks

I did up to 8 per clip to count for the double hazard clip. 3 to 4 clicks per hazard.I treated all clips as possible double hazard clips to be safe and I got 69/75

Thanks I will keep that in Mind, I do find the CGI clips easier as they are not as frantic as some of the real life ones.

What helped me to get good at them was by doing the practice clips that are on the DVSA CD which costs about £12. I found the test more lenient then the CD so it prepares you well.

Ive been using the official online DVSA hazard perception clips and theory which cost me £22 and I have done all 102 clips and that includes multiple choice.

Thank you so much for sharing your experience guys. Really helped me out. Got 63 one of them 0 for clicking 5 times possibly I misjudged the hazard with developing hazard. For the rest I clicked sometimes 7 times to make sure I will get into the score frame.
