DSA publishes new theory test books
The DSA has published new editions of the theory test books 'to give learner drivers and motorcyclists the best support as they prepare for their tests'.
From January 2012 the theory test will change for all candidates when DSA stops publishing the live bank of multiple choice test questions.
The official publications support this new approach by including the full DSA explanations for every revision question, in order to help candidates fully understand the answer.
Each question has extra help for candidates to improve their knowledge of the theory by including references to the official source materials where they can read the background information and learn more. This feature is available for drivers of large vehicles for the first time in the new edition.
Rosemary Thew, DSA’s chief executive, explains the change: “The reason behind the move is to stop candidates from simply memorising theory test questions and answers and learning by rote. The new books contain questions and answers for revision and also explain the theory behind each question.
“This approach to learning will help candidates to gain a better knowledge and understanding of driving theory which will help them respond correctly to the new, re-worded live questions used in the actual test. Our aim is to help road users to be safer and more efficient.”
