What is Hazard Perception?
In driving language, hazard perception is the ability to detect ‘what will happen next’ while driving through the road. It is important because hazard perception creates an awareness for the driver which, with proper training and practice can enhance a stronger awareness of the road you are driving on.
For example, if you are driving on a quiet suburb, you’ll automatically be aware of the surrounding. You’ll have to drive carefully, constantly staying alert in case an adult walks by or children cross the road. Anticipation is the key to a successful hazard perception driving.
Hazard perception is a compulsory test that you’ll need to ace in order to apply for your P2 license. At Learner Drivers, we cater this driving lessons as per your requirement.

One of the most important lessons while driving in Sydney is to look out for the road signs.
The Road Signs
When you approach a road sign, you can expect more from it. For example, if you’re approaching a roundabout, by now you know what you may expect. Similarly, you’ll have to read in between the signs. A pedestrian walking sign can mean any pedestrian, regardless of age, can simply cross the road, because it’s their priority, and so on.
