3.0 out of 5 stars Rather limited but not completely without merit
I was torn between giving this 2 stars and 3 - as a full price product it's not worth more than 2 stars but as a budget title (under a fiver) it probably deserves a 3.

This review is from: Driving Test (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
I was torn between giving this 2 stars and 3 - as a full price product it's not worth more than 2 stars but as a budget title (under a fiver) it probably deserves a 3.

If you're after a way to test yourself on the multiple choice part of the theory test whilst on the move then this pretty much does the job. You can select a 'mock test' and are given a random selection of 50 official questions and one hour in which to complete them (although you'll probably only need about 10 minutes). This is pretty much exactly what you'll be doing in the real thing and if you find you pass these mock tests easily (or 'with flying colours' as the game puts it, even where you only just manage the pass mark!) then you'll pass the multiple choice section of the real thing with ease as well.

One of the big drawbacks, however, is that that's pretty much all this 'game' offers in terms of the multiple choice part of the theory - there's no option to brush up on certain topics or practice questions by DSA category. There is a road sign section and a thinking/stopping/braking distance mini-game, both of which are quite useful but that's it. There are other options like 'learn' but this is nothing more than a video clip giving you 'helpful hints' on how to pass your theory test, which don't really go much beyond 'Get to the test centre in good time!'.

The hazard perception portion of this game is, unfortunately, very poor indeed. You get 8 (low quality) clips that you can't select, so you'll frequently find you get the same clip two or three times in a row. Worse, however, is the fact that the scoring is completely wrong; you can still get points when the hazard is long gone and this really should have been picked up at the testing stage.

In short, if you can pick it up for a few quid then it's a helpful tool to practise the multiple choice part of your theory test, but if you already have one of the many CD ROMS available then it's not really worth it, and don't expect to be able to use it to learn the theory either. If you're looking for a tool to practise hazard perception then save your money, as this is next to useless.

Learn
The first section where the user can access video and text information for advice on preparing for the theory test and explain the process involved in passing the test. It makes the learner more aware of what is expected in the various elements of the driving test by covering several topics.
Practice
Allows the learner explore the knowledge they need for their official test in the form of three games designed around DSA content principles. Not much use but fun anywhere.
Test
The user can take a test in the format of the official theory test using real DSA official question banks. As with the real theory test, these have a set time limit in which to complete. This part of the game is useful so focus more time to this,This section is broken down into 3 areas
Quick Test: The user selects the time available and receives fewer questions than the full test,
Mock Theory Test: The user sits a full-length test of 50 questions that have to be completed in approximately 57 minutes with questions from the official DSA question bank. The pass mark is 43 out of the 50 questions.
Hazard Perception: The user takes one of eight tests provided by the DSA to emulate the experience of the real test as taken on the test day. The user is asked to watch a video and tap on the touch pad every time they see a potential hazard. 8 Clips you need more really
The Driving Test aid designed specifically for the Learner who spends life on the move, ie bus and train or some one doing a crash course.
Records each player's progress in personalised profiles..
Features the latest official DSA question bank-exactly as you'll find in the real test.
Contains official DSA video clips as used in the Hazard Perception Test.
Covers, stopping distances and road sign recollection.
Includes full and short tests to adapt to your schedule.
Hosted by Penny Mallory-Presenter of 'Driven' on Channel 4, World Rally Champion and driving coach so give it a try have a great driving week.

This review is from: Driving Test (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
The game is bright and cheery, but that is about it. The 3 sections are awful - especially the "Learn" section.
The "Theory" section is good, but flawed as you can't select ares to brush up on - you just go through either a whole 50 question test or a shorter test.
The "Hazard Perception" bit is poor too - only eight videos that are very poor quality. I was failing because it was inpossible to actually see the hazard in time!
The "Stoping distance" part is useful though, along with the "Road sign" game.
Sadly this is all this game offers - i give it 1 star as it includes "Hazard perception" and another just for trying to be something it can't really be. I'm glad i only paid £6 for it.
If you are looking for a game like this i'd recommend "Pass Your Driving Theort Test" :)

This ds software is easy to use and quite informative. It allows you to practice your driving theory and hazzard perception anywhere, rather than being confined to your computer. The package arrived in good time and condition.
