Makeover for theory test
The DVSA has announced that from 12 January 2015 new computer-generated imagery (CGI) clips have replaced old filmed clips in the hazard perception part of the theory test.
Until now, the test comprised filmed video clips which show everyday road scenes. DVSA says that while the clips are still relevant in terms of content, the image quality isn’t as clear or defined as modern technology allows.
The new clips show the same situations as the previous clips, but feature updated vehicles, roads and surroundings so they look contemporary. All of the clips contain at least one 'developing hazard', while one features two 'developing hazards'.
The way the hazard perception part of the theory test works hasn’t changed, and the pass mark remains the same.
