Not that useful

The videos in the app are quite well constructed however when you actually click on a hazard you also need to press on the screen multiple times in the same section in order to pass. Sometimes even when doing this the taps are not registered.

Usually I did notice these hazards however receive a low score because not all taps were registered correctly. Most of the time it is a single hazard in a 20 second video that required multiple taps when you would think it would be just one tap?

Made by idiots

You had 1 key job: record the taps. Because this a poor hybrid app (basically a web video player in an app wrapper) the app screen wants to scroll. This means if there’s the slightest movement when you tap the screen it doesn’t register that you detected a hazard and instead tries to move the screen; or if your really unlucky it gets treated as a tap hold, highlights the entire screen and puts on the context menu so your following tap doesn’t count either. This is a cash grab in my books, the DVSA paid some very low end developers to make this app, and they obviously don’t care as the issues would be obvious in any QA. Unfortunately the only way to fix this is to totally redevelop the app from scratch with proper developers which the DVSA wont want to do until they’ve fleeeced enough money to pay for it.
Videos are low res, passable in most instance but when on a large screen such as my iPad Pro the night scenes with lens flare from lights are too poor quality.
There’s something like 20 videos here, you’ll be done in an hour.
Useful app for illustrating how flawed the hazard test, ooh look at the big bus it’s been there a while and clearly going to pull out so I’ll tap... what it’s too early I had to wait for it to indicate?

Useful, but has annoying faults.

The app is easy to use and most of the clips are useful, as they show real-life hazards which could very easily happen to anyone. That’s the point of the app - job done.

HOWEVER, some of the clips don’t score you fairly. Like when I noticed a hazard in one clip before it thinks you can notice it. I ended up scoring 0/5, when I should have gotten 5/5. I literally noticed it too soon. Even though, when you review the clip to see where the hazard was, the read circle (which shows you the hazard) appeared at the same point in the clip when I tapped the screen. I tapped just before the point at which it scores you 5/5, even though I noticed the hazard when it appeared. This is unacceptable, especially from an organisation like the DVSA.

The quality of the clips needs to be drastically improved. One clip shows you driving down a narrow road with trees either side. As you turn a corner, the hazard appears. The quality of the video meant that I couldn’t see it until it was too late - and I have impeccable eyesight. As a result, I scored 2/5 due to the poor quality of the clip.

These faults need to be fixed immediately. After all, you are affecting possible outcomes of people‘s theory tests.
