What is the awareness test like?

 

It's awful. I hate it. Passed it first time for A1, failed first time for ADI. Damn those sheep!


Just click every time you see a DEVELOPING hazard, and not when you see a POTENTIAL hazard.


To put it another way, treat the mouse button as a brake lever. Click every time something on screen would make you brake, and not when it would make you cover your brake just in case...


Example: A car approaching a junction ahead and to your left is a POTENTIAL hazard. A car exiting a junction ahead and to your left is a DEVELOPING hazard.


And lastly, if you see sheep, DO NOT RELAX. There are more ahead!

Good luck I always found the questions easy but struggle on the hazard perception on both my car and bike theories. Can see the hazard just to early. Oh well :) bogof has given some great advice, wish someone would have explained it to Me like that

So click on each developing hazard twice, which equates to BRAKE (click), BRAKE HARDER (click) and maybe even BRAKE RELEASE (click). Doing this on each developing hazard shouldn't trigger the "cheat" routine, but should enable you to score on each clip.

Went yesterday to Ilford test centre.


There must be a lot of pizza delivery jobs going. It was full.


Turns out the national computer network had crashed and the online testing was down. Cancelled and bumped.


Gutted. Even had the poxy afternoon off work. They could have called me but someone decided it was too much hassle and easier to tell us on the door.

thats the best description I have heard. I got really confused about when to click. I kept clicking when I saw people on the pavement etc
