Hazard perception helpWatch
Hi guys, I’ve got my theory on Monday and I’m still struggling with hazard perception, I didn’t even know this was possible but I keep identifying the hazard “too early” how am I suppose to time it right without using too many flags?
I always tapped about 2-3 times - once when I first saw the hazard, once a couple of seconds later then one more time when it was really clear the hazard would cause the driver to act. Remember you are looking for developing hazards - when a hazard is such that the driver needs to act e.g. by changing speed - so try and think about when a hazard is developing, and don’t just tap whenever you see anything that could be a potential hazard. Try and know common ones (cyclists, horse riders, pedestrians, cars changing lanes, narrowing of a road etc) and search online for free practice clips - try and do as many as possible between now and Monday. Good luck!
As above, ONE clip will have 2....but this does mean you need to be aware of it for all 15...don't worry about being a little early, you're supposed to click as soon as you're aware of the potential hazard, not wait until its right in front of you. The software is pretty tolerant...in 3 full attempts I only ever had it disqualify me for overclicking on one question. (still passed that section)
How many clicks is the absolute maximum? I’m so scared I genuinely think I’m going to fail D:
Try not to stress, the vast majority of the hazards are v obvious, mainly cars/bikes approaching from the sides at speed and people about to step into the road, a couple where it's more random like doors opening in front of you or oncoming heavy vehicles and such.
