Man cheats during theory test by using a Bluetooth ear pieceWatch

I found this good description on reddit.
Just did my theory (passed the multiple choice with 48/50) but I have to vent a little about the hazard perception test. I've been driving since 1991 and am also an IAM-trained driver, so consider myself to be a fairly decent driver. I do a hell of a lot of cycling too, I reckon I have pretty good road sense. Clean licence, never had any points.
But the hazard perception test is largely guesswork. I'm confident I saw every single developing hazard on there, but the fear of clicking too many times, or in a pattern, or not enough, just made me sweat more than I should have. Kids walking along the pavement - that's a hazard. Cars approaching from the other direction - hazard. Cars crossing my path - hazard. Blind crest - hazard. You get my point. But the test just seems to focus on "if you don't do anything you'll crash here", which is a bit silly. And the CGI "driver" made several errors, like overtaking a cyclist way too closely on a blind corner with parked vehicles on the opposite side of the road, or changing into a prohibited lane on the motorway. Are those hazards? I don't think the test marks them as such.
