New TSO publications mark driving test anniversary

12.42 | 28 July 2010 |

New editions of the Driving Standard Agency’s (DSA’s) best-selling titles have been published to mark the 75th anniversary of the driving test.

Since Mr J Beene took the first driving test in 1935, more than 94 million tests have been conducted in Britain. The test has played a vital role in making the country’s roads safer.

Trevor Wedge, chief driving examiner at the DSA, said: “The driving test still retains some of the original elements, but is updated regularly.

“We continue to make sure that the test properly prepares drivers for the demands of modern roads.”

More than 1.5m people are expected to take their theory test in 2010. To help them prepare, a new theory test book and software, including a CD-ROM containing possible theory test questions and a DVD showing an actual test in action, are some of the new resources offered by the DSA.
