The new theory test changes took place today, with learner drivers now having to learn the material instead of memorising the questions and answers.
The DSA (Driving Standards Agency) hope that by not publishing the theory test questions and answers, that drivers will gain a better understanding of our roads. It will encourage them to learn each topic thoroughly enough to be able to answer any questions asked. Previously it was feared that drivers were simply memorising the correct answer for that question and not understanding the issues surrounding it.
Theory test books and software will still be available and offer a form of revision for learners, with exercises and questions allowing them to assess their progress and apply what they have learnt.
It may seem a chore for those about to sit the theory test but it’s there to benefit them and other road users once they obtain their full driving licence.
