You’ve bought your learner driver insurance, you’ve had lots of lessons, and now you are ready to get serious about your test.

While these may have been the only way to pass your test in days gone by, there are more ways to help you get that driving licence today.

Best Apps for Learner Drivers

There is an app for everything these days, and driving tests are no different. In fact, taking advantage of one of the many theory test apps out there has a clear advantage over using a book, as many apps are regularly updated.

This keeps you abreast of the most recent changes to the test, and keeps you up to date on current best practice. Some apps offer hazard perception questions as well, so you’re ready for both exams.

To make sure you find the right driving theory test app for you, whether you’re on Android or iPhone, we’ve compiled a list of the most highly rated so you can have a great chance of passing on your first try.
