Important information about the Theory Test
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) stopped publishing the multiple choice questions and answers used in the actual theory test for car drivers and motorcycle riders on 23rd January 2012. A completely new set of theory test questions was introduced at this point. These questions are not available to the public in any product or in any other form. The Official DVSA theory test question bank that had been published prior to these new questions is still available for use through many different products but these questions are no longer the real test questions. Because these are no longer the real test questions the Official DVSA theory test question bank must now be referred to as the Official DVSA Theory Test practice or revision questions (i.e. not the real questions).
The move was introduced by the Road Safety Minister to ensure new drivers learn the principles behind driving theory instead of just memorising the answers to pre-set questions. Also as part of these improvements newer more difficult case studies questions were introduced at the same time - again emphasising the need to properly learn and understand the theory aspect of driving and riding. Consequently, when looking for a product make sure it has a good learning section as well a realistic test practice section.
