4.0 out of 5 stars Useful but not perfect 5 Sept. 2008
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The DS has become popular and innovative in the way that its usefulness goes beyond simple gaming, particularly with the brain-stimulating games (such as Brain Training) that are available for the handheld machine, so it's no real surprise that Atari have come up with Driving Theory Training.

So at the RRP of £19.99, what do you get exactly?

You get a game that caters for up to 4 separate profiles as well as a "Guest" profile.
"Practice Exam" mode that simulates real exam conditions
"Practice", "Random Test" and "Challenge" modes
The Highway Code included in the software
List of road signs with description
A selection of mini-games
Progress and high score information

Now on to the mini-games:

Memory- Try to pair up all of the road signs hidden on the screen
Expert Memory- Look at a sign for a moment then find the correct sign afterwards
Sign Game- Create a sign using shape, colour, and design to match it's description
Park Your Car- Park your car in a variety of different situations
Car Game- Repeat the order that the indicators light up

"Park Your Car" is the only one really worth going into more detail. You steer a car from a bird's eye view using the touch screen steering wheel and try to park correctly at a free car park space that is often at the end of a little maze of turns. This is the main mini-game as the other ones are basically simple puzzle/memory games.

This game does exactly what it says, helps you practice for you driving theory test whether it's for car or motorcycle with over 1000 questions taken from the official theory test (labelled as being valid from September 2008), as well as throwing in some extra mini games.

Driving Theory Training (Nintendo DS)
To start with this is not a game as such but it is a learning tool, with fun.
The Nintendo has become popular in the way that its usefulness goes beyond simple games, Very useful for someone on the move, sitting on the bus etc, because you can practise pretty much anywhere, so if you want to revise in your spare time whilst doing a crash driving course on the night say, it's a good way training using spare moments.
Practice Exam mode that simulates real exam conditions
Practice, Random Test and "Challenge" modes
The Highway Code included in the software
List of road signs with description
A selection of mini-games
Progress and high score information
There are also mini-games, still helpful and useful
Memory- Try to pair up all of the road signs hidden on the screen
Expert Memory- Look at a sign for a moment then find the correct sign afterwards
Sign Game- Create a sign using shape, colour, and design Park Your Car- Park your car in a variety of different situations
Car Game- Repeat the order that the indicators light up
Park Your Car is the one really worth going into more detail. This is the most useful, You steer a car from a bird's eye view using the touch screen steering wheel and try to park correctly at a free car park space that is at the end of a little maze of turns.

3.0 out of 5 stars Driving Theory Training (ATARI) 2 Sept. 2008
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Another training game for the DS, this time aimed at the learner driver. The game contains the official theory test questions for car and motorcyclists and is valid from September 2008. The game itself is broken up in to a variety of 'mini games' in which you can learn the road signs and using the stylus to control the steering wheel (bottom screen) you can rehearse the various sequences of the parallel park and other manoeuvres. The game also includes the Highway Code and 'realistic' training and exam modes for the all important test.

The game gets a 3 star rating for fun, as the context is fairly bland and ATARI could have been more imaginative in creating the mini games. However in short bursts the game is enjoyable and will help in preparation for the theory test and at £14.99 you can't ask for much more.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't spend your money on this learning aid! 8 April 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game was delivered a week ago and initially I thought it would be a fun and useful aid to help me get passed my theory test. This hinges, of course, on the game giving you the correct Highway Code information. It doesn't always do this.

There are various mini games,which you will find more detail on in other reviews and product listings, one of which did stand out for me, it is a mini game to help you learn different road signs as this is something I struggle with (I mix up circular and triangular signs!!). The game describes a sign in words to you on the top screen and the touch screen has three blank shapes a circle, a square & a triangle which you have to identify as the correct shape for the described sign. During one game, as an example, I was asked what the sign for end of motorway was, I tapped the square shape & was told I was wrong and it showed the circular sign that means clearway no stopping as the correct answer! Not good, as this kind of glitch happens almost every time you play.

I took a practice exam many times and reviewed the answers I had got wrong one of which was this:

It is very windy. You are about to overtake a motorcyclist. You should:
A overtake slowly - B allow extra room - C sound your horn - D keep close as you pass

I answered B but was told in bright red writing that this was incorrect and that the correct answer was A! Ummm.... no I don't think so! So I went into the 'See the answer' option at the bottom of the touch screen just to check in case I had temporarily gone mad. This screen again in red capital letters agreed that I was incorrect BUT the explanation read as follows: Always be aware that a motorcycle maybe blown off its course into your path.
