The best way to start the preparation process for the HPT is by using practice tests. And not just any tests. Choose the online practise tests designed to work just like the official WA HPT tests. When you do, you will learn more about the test and what to expect.
Try our free practice Hazard Perception Test (WA) today and see how prepared you are for the real thing.
The Better Way to Prepare for the HPT WA
Split-second decisions and quick response times make the difference in potentially hazardous situations. Learn more about the types of questions on the HPT WA.
Knowing how the test is structured puts you in a better position to pass the HPT. Our simulation exercises help you practice and prepare all at the same time.
When you’re confident that you’ve practised all you need, then it’s time to follow the simple process to book and sit the WA HPT. So, start practising today.

No payment or sign up required to use our free hazard perception practice tests.
Practice your hazard perception skills in the comfort of your home or on the go.
See and answer real examples of potential hazards in the same format as the test.
The Hazard Perception Test is a computer-based test that assesses your ability to recognise and respond to potentially hazardous situations while driving. It shows several video clips of driving situations for you to indicate how you would react.
Hazard perception is an important aspect of safe driving. So, the screen-based test helps to identify drivers at a higher risk for crashes. They assess the common risk areas for Learner Drivers and passing the test helps to lower the risk of these accidents.
You must pass the HPT before you can sit the Practical Driving Assessment (PDA) and get your provisional licence.
To be eligible to sit the WA HPT test, you must be at least 16 years and six months old and have held your Learner’s Permit for at least six months.
If you can prove that you live outside 100 km of an HPT location, then you may be granted an exemption from passing the test. You will need to fill out and submit an Application for Exemption Hazard Perception Test (E19) form.
After passing the HPT and recording a minimum of 50 hours of supervised driving (at least five hours at night), you can then sit the WA Practical Driving Assessment.
There are several test centres where you can take the HPT.
If you’re going to take the test at one of the WA regional Department of Transport or a metropolitan Driver & Vehicle Service (DVS) Centre, then you do not need to make an appointment. (You can search for a service centre here.)
You will need to make an appointment if you intend to sit the test at a regional Department of Transport agent. You’ll need to provide proof of identification on the day.
Understanding what to expect on the HPT and how to respond to the hazards shown are important for passing the WA HPT test. Plus, every subsequent Hazard Perception Test resit comes at a cost. So, to avoid paying out for continued test failures, it just makes sense to prepare properly for the WA HPT test.
You can practice using our online test simulator until you’re confident to tackle the real thing.
