Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Anyone preparing to take the required written exam before putting in for a driving test would do well to investigate Driving Test Success Theory 2003/2004. The CD-ROM includes every question in the official DSA Driving Theory Test Question Bank--over 1,000 of them--and a host of useful extras.

The main menu is divided into four sections. From here you can either learn some Highway Code theory, take an exam, run the included bonus "Hazard Perception" CD-ROM (this is now an important part of the theory exam) or look up something in the Highway Code.

If you click on the "Learn Some Theory" option, you'll be taken straight to the learning module where there are 20 untimed multiple choice questions. You can click on the answers and plough on through, but if you get stuck there's a Hint button that will help you out, as well as a Highway Code button which will take you straight to the relevant section of the Code where you can find out more; if you get the answer wrong, click the "Why" button and the program will deliver the correct answer along with an explanation. Clicking the "Take an Exam" heading takes you straight to a 35-question, timed test which mimics the actual written exam. Taken together these sections encourage you to brush up on your overall knowledge and provide some useful practice for the test.

Under the Information menu you'll find an electronic version of the Highway Code and a whole bunch of other extras including "Show Me, Tell Me", a new part of the practical driving test that assesses your ability to keep your vehicle in a roadworthy condition. This is particularly useful if you're a mechanical duffer and covers basic maintenance such as changing a wheel (it even explains where to find the spare wheel), checking your brake fluid, bump starting, changing a fuse and so on. You'll also find a list of local test centres, driving schools--this is less useful, Wales only has two listed--and a handy Motoring Information section that includes contact details for accessory suppliers, car makers, rental companies, insurance, government agencies, motoring organisations and so on.

The addition of a "taster" CD-ROM containing 50 video clips in the style of those used in the new Hazard Perception test makes this a comprehensive aid to passing your test. --Rob Beattie

OK, so the driving theory test is not exactly like sitting your finals, but there are a few stinkers in there these days, and unless you have practiced with a book or with a CD like this, you could be looking at a humilating failure that you could well do with out! Using a previous incarnation of this CD, I got full marks first time. I found the video questions particularly helpful to practice, and know that many people found them tricky in the actual test. The questions are all categorised just like in the books, so you can concentrate on trouble spots.
The reason I say that you might not need this CD is simply because many driving instructors already have a copy that they are prepared to give you, so you'd be best to check it out first. That said, I had several people asking to borrow my CD, and I found it worth having simply because it was easier to use than the old style theory books.
The list of extra goodies you get with this new CD makes it worth buying in their own right, and crucially, the questions are valid from AFTER 1st July 2003 as well, so there's no need to worry about missing some new questions which are introduced from time to time.
You can sit practice tests which are timed, presented and scored in exactly the same way as the real test, so after a few practices, you can guarantee that you don't mess up by doing anything silly. So, unless your driving instructor gives you the CD first, you'd be well advised to invest a small amount of cash on this very helpful little CD-Rom, and guarantee that you pass first time and get on with the difficult bit, learning to drive!

I bought this last week, practiced with it for 3 or 4 days and passed first time with 34/35 multiple choice and 61/75 hazard perception (the pass marks are 30 and 44 respectively).
The multiple choice questions are IDENTICAL to those featured in the actual test. After doing the test seven or eight times you'll get used to the format of the questions and, like me, might find that you've already seen 25+ of the questions in your actual theory test.
The hazard perception section of the CD-ROM is also very similar to the real thing, although the video quality is significantly worse than the real thing due to storage capacity restrictions on the CD (the real test is more or less DVD quality while this video shows some pixellation and signs of video compression). It is also filmed slightly differently, with the camera behind the windscreen rather than attached to the bonnet of the car. This means that rain, windscreen wipers and reflections are distractions which do not feature in the real test but may obscure your vision while using this software. Otherwise, it provides excellent preparation for the style of the hazard perception test.
If you want to pass your theory first time, there really is no substitute. The only other thing I recommend you buy is the Highway Code to make sure you've revised all of the subject areas that may turn up in the exam. Remember, it'll cost you £22 to resit your theory test so it makes sense to buy this and make sure you pass first time.

This CD Rom is exellent. Cheaper than the official discs and books. It comes very close to the real theory test. There is plenty of studying you can do with these disks and if you regularly achieve the pass mark then you know you will pass the real test and you can apply for you test with confidance.
The hazzard perception cd is equally good and very close in content and in practice to that of the real test.
An excellent buy and well worth the money.(Cheaper than resitting your test).

Great product for knowing the theory questions. When I sat down for my test I thought this was too easy, simply because I had been revising from this CD together with the DSA "Driving the essential skills" Book. All the pictures were exact and the questions were word for word....it is simple if you revise. Using the CD to its fullest tracks your own progress from the first moment you log in to it. It is annoying having to change disks for the Hazard Perception Test which I actually cant seem to work out the scoring..it is a 50/50 thing, you either can or cant or in my case, just about. The requirements are passing with 44 out of 75 - i got 47...hmmm. With this CD you can learn some theory - try it at least 10 times with your book in hand - then move onto a test and stick with the test from therein. I wish it had its own "know these signs" (highway code) section, because I would have to give it 5/5 if it did. Affordable and decently priced.

After trying out numerous theory books and cd roms i came accross this one and just thought id try it out, well i did and its fantastic an ultimate essential for any learner driver. It is packed with everything you could possibly need. It has all the questions,with hints, tips and guidance and it actually explains why you got the question wrong, it also has the highway code included which you can refer to if stuck on a question. The mock tests are brilliant and the seperate hazard perceptionn disc very realistic. You can keep track of your progress with a monitor which can even give advise if you could be ready for the real thing and of any subject areas that need a little tlc. Well worth its money, an up to date, learner driver must, it definatley gets my thumbs up!!!!!
