Two new ‘Driving Test Success’ Apps have been released for the iPhone to help leaner drivers study while on the go.

The two Apps, produced for Focus Multimedia by Appyness Ltd, are available to buy from the App store and can also be used for the iPod touch and iPad.

‘Theory Test – Driving Test Success’ includes every question and answer from the official DSA question bank. It contains a modern interface, simple explanations, practice sessions, a progress monitor and the official DSA sample case study.

‘Hazard Perception – Driving Test Success’ simulates the official DSA hazard perception test. This App is also suitable for motorcyclists, driving instructors and bus and lorry drivers.

Focus Multimedia, a publisher of revision aids for learner drivers, says that around 1.5 million car theory tests were attempted in 2009/10, and 36% resulted in a fail. Learner car drivers who fail are wasting around £16.7m a year on extra tests.

Grant Hughes, Focus Multimedia, said: “Preparation is the key, and if you spend enough time revising from a trusted study aid then you will gain the knowledge and confidence you need to pass your theory test first time.

“If you haven’t put in hours of practice using a reliable resource then you’re throwing your theory test fee down the drain. It seems crazy to waste £31 of your hard-earned money when you can now buy a high quality theory test revision aid for less than £2.”

The Driving Test Success Apps are available now on the App Store with a suggested retail price of £1.79 each including VAT.
