    About completing a hazard perception test

    If you have a novice learner or L1 licence you can sit the hazard perception test (HPT) up to 3 months before your provisional test date.

    If you are a non-novice learner or converting an overseas licence, you can sit the HPT straight after you pass the learner driver knowledge test.

    You will have 45 mins to complete the test, but most people only need 20 mins. It is a good idea to allow an extra 5 to 10 minutes to go through the instructions and complete the practice questions.

    Once passed, the test result remains valid for 12 months. If you do not pass your practical driving assessment within this time, you will need to pass the HPT again.
