CGI makeover for theory test
The hazard perception part of the driving theory test is set to be updated with computer generated imagery (CGI) from early next year.
Filmed video clips are currently used to test candidates’ reactions to developing hazards on the road.
The scenarios in these clips are still relevant, but the image quality isn’t as clear or defined as modern digital technology allows.
The first new clips show the same situations as the filmed clips, but are clearer on the screen and include updated vehicles, roads and surroundings to reflect modern day driving.
