3 November 2022 - CIECA WEBINAR SERIES: Assessing the cross-cultural compatibility of hazard perception and prediction testing

PRESENTER: Dr Petya Ventsislavova, Nottingham Trent University

In this webinar, Dr Petya Ventsislavova from Nottingham Trent University will discuss the suitability of the hazard perception methodology to contribute to the licensing procedure in different countries across the world, based on data from several studies.  

Hazard perception testing and training has gained considerable popularity during the last two decades and several countries in Europe are considering following the example of the UK in implementing the test as part of their official driving test. The present webinar intends to discuss whether the current hazard perception methodology can be exported to different countries whilst retaining its diagnostic validity.  

The webinar aims to provide an overview of a number of studies conducted in different countries to test the adaptability of the hazard perception methodology for international export. These studies explored the various design elements of a future global blueprint for hazard perception testing. The main focus will be on the effectiveness of the hazard perception test to discriminate between safe and less-safe drivers on the basis of experience and its sensitivity to cultural differences. The webinar will also emphasise the importance of exploring hazard perception research beyond Western countries in order to develop a more robust methodology for international export, thus reducing problems of criterion bias, subjective judgements on scoring windows, and language difficulties in explaining what a hazard is.
