We study the the survival probability P(t) upto time t, of a test particle moving in a fluctuating external field. The particle moves according to some prescribed deterministic or stochastic rules and survives as long as the external field that it sees at its own location does not change sign. This is a natural generalization of the "static persistence" (when the particle is at rest) that has generated considerable recent interests. Two types of motions of the particle are considered.
