The technology giant Apple has named the Official DVSA Theory Test Kit app as the top-selling paid-for iOS app of 2017.

The DVSA app beat of competition from the likes of Minecraft and the Football Manager 2018 mobile app.

Priced at £4.99, the DVSA app prepares drivers for the theory and hazard perception test.

It includes information on all 14 topics featured within the test as well as mock tests with every official DVSA car theory test revision question and answer.

The app also features 10 official DVSA practice hazard perception interactive video clips.

The current version of the app has a four and a half star rating from 459 reviews.

Gareth Llewellyn, DVSA chief executive, said: “I’m delighted that DVSA’s Official Theory Test Kit is the top-selling app of 2017 on the App Store. We’re determined to help drivers learn and develop their knowledge in a way that suits them.

“Since 2011, more than 1.4 million people have used DVSA apps to study, practice and take mock tests. That makes these apps some of the most successful learning aids in Britain – helping a new generation of drivers to stay safe on our roads.”

    We now have the technology to update and train all drivers. We should be looking to involve all qualified drivers in a continuous education process. A requirement for all drivers to log and do a training and road safety refresher coarse at regular intervals (say 5 years) As it stands you can drive on the roads for 50 years plus and there is no additional training required or given. A much better way of spending ‘Think’ money and getting the message across to the target audience. The ‘smart motorways’ introduction highlights this fundamental failing in the driver training process and the need to move forward. If you have an IPAF licence to drive a cherry picker you have to do a road safety refresher every five years. Much of workplace training, fire, cosh, manual handling etc. is now done through web based e-training packages. Road safety is missing a trick here!
