The Hazard Perception Test NSW is an essential requirement in the NSW licensing process. You must pass the HPT before you can take the driving test to upgrade from a learner licence to a P1 licence.
The NSW HPT is a computer-based touch screen test. It tests your ability to detect and respond to potentially dangerous driving situations. The test questions focus on the five most common crash types for provisional drivers in NSW. These include scanning for hazards, identifying safe gaps at intersections and when turning, and choosing appropriate stopping distances.
The test is available in up to 10 languages, and a free interpreter can be provided if it’s not available in your preferred language.
If you are a learner driver and you have held your learner licence for at least 12 months with a minimum of 120 supervised hours of driving practice, you can attempt the NSW HPT. (If you’re over 25, you can attempt the HPT without the 12-month minimum requirement).
Once you pass the HPT, you can then book the driving test to get the provisional P1 (red) licence.
Once you’re ready to take the test, you can book the HPT NSW online. You’ll sit the test on the day at the location chosen. You are required to pay a fee at each test attempt. So, make sure you prepare well to avoid paying for multiple test attempts.
The HPT comes with a time limit. If you do not pass the driving test within 15 months of passing the HPT, you will have to retake the HPT.
Practising the HPT helps to build your hazard perception skills. You can also review the NSW Hazard Perception Handbook. The handbook outlines the crash patterns of provisional drivers, how the HPT works, and how to identify and respond to the five main types of hazardous situations.
While the theoretical aspect is important, you also need to know what to expect on the test and how you are to respond. So, online practice tests help in this aspect.
Now, unlike the animations used on the NSW HPT site, our practice tests show real traffic situations to help you prepare better for the actual test. These clips are as close to actual test questions as possible, so you’re able to prepare better to pass the HPT.
