It is based on a moving vehicle going through certain Hazard situation mimicking real life driving situations which you will be asked to respond to avoid a potential collision.

To sit for your Provisional Licence you must be at least 16 years of age and must have held your learners licence for a period of 12 months. You must also have completed your Hazard Perception Test at your local Roads and Maritime Service in order to be able to book your Provisional 1 driving test. This can be booked once you have held your Ls for a minimum of 9 months. Once you have passed your Hazard Perception Test the Roads and Maritime Service will ask you to book your Provisional 1 Driving Test.

The Roads and Maritime Services will ask you to keep the application form which you presented and also issue you with the paperwork stating you have passed your Hazard Perception Test.

Please do not book it with the Roads and Maritime Service as your Drivezone Driving Instructor will book the Provisional 1 test for you in order to make sure your driving instructor and their car will be available to you for your Provisional 1 driving test.

Hazard Perception Test Handbook

 

You can make a left turn into a right lane directly as long as there are no solid road markings on the road. The lane you are turning into and the lane directly beside you must be clear before you pull out. The same goes for turning right: you may turn directly from the right lane directly into the left lane.

The only time this is not acceptable is if you are in a marked lane with turning arrows then you must end up in the same lane you started in.

Drivezone Driving School Turns at Traffic Lights in Richmond NSW

Richmond NSW has many turns at complex traffic lights.

Drivezone Driving School Turns at Traffic Lights in Richmond NSW

When making turns at traffic lights on approaching the green light you just slow right down to allow for the amber light ensuring you can stop safe behind Stop solid line.

If you are the first car waiting in line to turn either left or right you may proceed out slowly up to the furtherest pedestrian line and stop. You then need to give way to oncoming traffic, traffic turning left and pedestrians. When it is all clear you may make your turn. If whilst waiting in the intersection, the green light goes to amber you must proceed to make the right hand turn as you do not want your car to be caught stationery in the middle of the intersection once the light goes red.

Drivezone Driving School Turns Traffic Lights in Richmond NSW

When coming to a set of traffic lights always check the left hand traffic light post as it may have an advisory sign stating left turn on red permitted after stopping. If you come to this sign you must first stop behind the first line closet to you, like when using a Stop sign. Once you have come to a complete stop, you may creep forward whist checking right for traffic and if the traffic is clear or there is a safe gap to your right you may proceed with your left hand turn. Please be aware while you are waiting to turn left, your traffic lights do not go green.

Traffic Lights in Richmond NSWDrivezone Driving School Richmond NSW

If whilst waiting out in the centre if the traffic single goes amber it is safe to turn on the amber light making sure that no one in front runs the red light and all traffic is clear.

If you have a red arrow traffic light you must wait until it disappears in which case you can move put into the centre and give way or if it goes solid green you may turn.

When taking your Provisional 1 on road driving test at Richmond Roads and Maritime Services the above driving scenarios are extremely common.
