Learner drivers will be able to take a virtual reality road exam next month in a bid to cut the number of car accidents in the UK.
The Hazard Perception Test is being brought in to test the responses of learner drivers and will run alongside the existing 40-minute theory exam which is taken before the actual driving test.
The computerised exam will feature 14 one-minute video clips filmed from the roof of a Ford Mondeo. The scenes show various hazards such as children emerging from behind parked cars and animals on highways.
Learners have to press a button as soon as they spot a danger and, if they repeatedly click the mouse when there is no hazard, they will fail the test.
The new exam, which will cost an extra £2.50 on top of the £18 theory test, is being introduced on 14 November.
