DVSA has announced changes to the hazard perception test for cars, to help improve road safety.

Twenty-three new CGI clips have been added into the driving theory test to simulate adverse weather conditions including:

  • Snow
  • Wind
  • Fog and rain

There will also be clips showing the type of low-level lighting experienced at dusk and dawn.

The new clips will also be added to:

  • Motorcycle theory tests from December 2018
  • Lorry bus and coach theory tests from early 2019
  • Approved driving instructor part 1 tests and DVSA enhanced rider scheme trainer theory tests from early 2019
