The Hazard Perception Handbook produced by Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) aims to help develop your hazard perception skills and make you a safer driver.
Although the Hazard Perception Test (HPT) is a practical, computer-based test - the theory resources available can still assist your preparation. The Handbook outlines the skills necessary for effective hazard perception (the skills assessed by the HPT). Reading through the Handbook (which can be found here) forms the base for an appropriate preparation for the HPT.
drivingtestnsw.com has produced a summary of the Hazard Perception Handbook (which condenses and synthesises the 92-page Handbook into 22 pages) to help you prepare for the DQT. This can be used as a substitute for the Handbook or as a tool for revision.
