Book a hazard perception test

If you are a learner driver, you must pass a hazard perception test before you can take the practical assessment to get your driver’s licence.

You can take the hazard perception test six months after getting your learner’s permit. You must be aged at least 16½.

The test features video clips of different traffic situations and is used to measure your ability to judge road hazards and make safe driving decisions.

Bookings are not required if you sit the test at any metropolitan Driver and Vehicle Services Centre or regional Department of Transport centre but all tests must start before 3.45pm. If you are sitting the test at a regional agent you must make a booking.

Sitting the test for the first time costs $23.60 and $16.75 each time you re-sit the test. Payment is made at the centre or regional agent.

You can practice online before sitting the test.
