Hand eye co-ordination tests are common in the Pilot selection process. The co-ordination practice test allows you to practice your ability to control a dynamic object using a joystick to assess your hand eye co-ordination. The assessment is commonly used as an initial test of physical skills and hand eye co-ordination to help to predict how well you will be able to deal with the physical tasks around training. Our practice test gives you the opportunity to hone those skills.

* Please note, this test is a joystick only version.

What is included?

You will receive fifteen attempts at the Co-Ordination and Control Test which is a physical test and requires the use of a Joystick.

Advice from our Psychologists

The Co-Ordination assessment is a useful tool in helping to predict how well you will be able to deal with the physical tasks throughout your training. It measures both your current level of hand-eye co-ordination as well as your ability to efficiently improve your skills and adapt quickly to new and demanding environments. The stronger your performance and learning the more likely you will be to pick up new skills throughout your training. With this in mind any practice that you can do will position you well to do well in this test.

We recommend taking practice tests but also playing games that use a joystick, taking part in sports that will improve your co-ordination, playing a musical instrument or playing a game of catch, any activities that could strengthen your hand-eye co-ordination.
