DSA publications now available for download
The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) has made the official car and motorcycle theory test guides available as fully interactive downloads.
The DSA says the new downloads are a significant development, giving theory test candidates the best start to their revision. Written by the people who set the tests, ‘The Official DSA Theory Test for Car Drivers Interactive Download’ and ‘The Official DSA Theory Test for Motorcyclists Interactive Download’, allow learner drivers and riders to revise at the click of a button.
Both products include every question that candidates could be asked in their theory tests (until January 2012), together with the DSA explanations of the answers and a full digital version of ‘The Official Highway Code’.
These downloads provide theory test candidates with the closest experience to actually taking their test, says the DSA. Results from the mock tests are analysed to highlight areas for further revision, and customised tests can easily be built to enable candidates to practice just the sections which need more work.
