DVSA apps pass one million milestone

The DVSA has reached one million downloads across its portfolio of apps, its official publisher (TSO) has announced.

In a press release issued by The Stationery Office (TSO) earlier this week, the DVSA said it was ‘delighted’ to reach the landmark.

The official DVSA app range includes the Theory Test Kit, Hazard Perception Practice and The Official Highway Code, all of which have ‘a wealth’ of five-star reviews.

The Theory Test Kit has proved particularly popular and consistently ranks as the top paid-for app across all categories of the UK iTunes app chart.

TSO, the DVSA’s official publishing partner, has 200 years’ experience of providing publishing and information solutions to the public sector. It specialises in the creation, production and distribution of information in print, online and electronic formats.

Gareth Llewellyn, CEO at DVSA, said: “We’re delighted to have reached this landmark. The official DVSA apps are a great resource for a lifetime of safe driving, not just the test.”

All three official DVSA apps are available to download from the iOS App Store, starting at £2.99. The Official DVSA Theory Test Kit for Android devices is available to download from both Google Play and Amazon, priced at £4.99.

If you have any questions, or would like to review any of the apps, contact Tim Key at TSO Marketing via email or on 01603 694805.

    It is available on Android, it says so in the article and I just checked the app store. The Highway Code is included in the Official DVSA Theory Test Kit app.

    Charles, it’s freely available on the .gov website, no need for an app.

    So not only is the Highway Code not available for Android devices, you have to PAY for it on iOS. No wonder less than 2% of the population has downloaded it!

    In the paper dominated days, I could never understand why HMG didn’t, as a matter of policy, distribute free copies of the Highway Code to each UK Driving Licence holder, let alone to each household, each time there was a new version. Now to see that the App version isn’t even available for the hugely dominant Android O/S (it has about 80% market share to iOS’s 20%) simply beggars belief. I would just love to hear the reasoning behind that decision.
