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?

Not registering taps
The screen still does not register when it is tapped despite feedback stating it the problem has been resolved. Therefore users are unable to track their actual progress in preparation for the theory test. Another issue is being advised to identify a potential hazard as early as possible, but if you tap too soon it may not score anything as there is a certain windows within which to score the necessary points to pass the hazard perception test. This is an issue my driving instructor advises does not equate to driving in reality as drivers need to be aware of potential hazards and be prepared to take action as soon as they see a developing hazard. This is unhelpful. Lastly the quality of the videos is poor for those with Scotopic sensitivity (Meade’s-Irlen Syndrome) or visual stress
