The hazard perception test is part of the Queensland driving assessment process. It’s designed to test a driver’s ability to quickly detect and respond to potentially hazardous situations on the roads. You must pass the HPT to upgrade your licence to a P2 or Open licence.
The HPT consists of video clips of traffic scenes with potentially hazardous situations. These situations can include vehicles turning, overtaking pedestrians and cyclists, responding to vehicles reversing, etc. You’ll be given instructions before the start of each video clip. Then you will need to click (or not click) to respond to the hazard identified.
Anyone holding a current P1 licence for at least one (1) year can take the QLD HPT. According to the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads, you don’t have to hold the P1 licence for a consecutive 1-year period.
So, even if the licence was expired or suspended for a period (these periods aren’t counted in the 1-year minimum requirement), you can still apply for an upgrade as long as the P1 licence is now current.
The Queensland HPT is administered as an online test, which means you can’t take the test at a customer service centre. So, you must have computer and internet access to take the test.
You can take the test as many times as you need to pass. But, you can only take it once per day if you fail.
The good thing is that you only pay for the test once you pass. (This is not the same for other states). After you have passed the test, follow the instructions on the QLD website on what to do to pay for the test and get the upgrade of your licence.
Driving experience is an excellent way to improve your hazard perception skills. But, in a test condition, it may be a bit more challenging to understand. The HPT practice tests (like the free ones we offer) allow you to know what to expect on the real test. They are also a useful guide in helping you to learn what to look for and how to respond so that you have a better chance of passing the official test.
