Hazard Perception Test simulator

Once a minimum of six calendar months has lapsed since you were issued with your Learner's permit and you have reached the minimum age of 16 years and six months, you can sit your Hazard Perception Test (HPT).

You must pass the HPT before you can attempt a Practical Driving Assessment (PDA).

Test your skills with our online simulator.

  Holders of a moped R-N class licence

You are not required to sit the Hazard Perception Test in order to obtain a moped R-N class licence.

However, you will need to sit the Hazard Perception Test, and complete all of the necessary steps, if you apply for a licence to drive another vehicle class.

  Resources provided by the Road Safety Commission

The Road Safety Commission has several online games and quizzes designed both to help you in your journey in obtaining a driver's licence, and to encourage you to be a safe driver.

Indigenous road safety

Aboriginal people are over-represented in road trauma in Australia. In Western Australia, Aboriginal people make up 3% of the population, but 9% of those killed on the roads and 8% of those who are seriously injured.

The Indigenous Drink Driving and Licensing Kit may be found on the Road Safety Commission's website. The kit offers 10 different road safety and licensing resources specifically developed for Aboriginal people in Western Australia.
