Hazard Perception to use CGI

The DVSA is to start using hazard perception tests, replacing the old classic video scenes with more accurate digital ones. This is in order to make the clips more accurate and realistic.

Though the current video clips used are good, CGI technologies can provide a much better visual experience than what most classic imagery used to date can expect. This would, therefore, make the test a lot more realistic.

DVSA have also said that a wider range of hazards will also be used which includes vulnerable road users. The clips will be updated with new vehicles, new types of roads and modern surroundings. In addition, changing weather and lighting conditions will become possible so that tests can be expanded to night time, bad weather, winter conditions and other settings.
