DITC co-founder Chris Bensted is a specialist Theory Trainer and runs Theory Test Explained. He spoke at the Driving Instructor Live Show, at the British Motoring Museum (Video here) about the opportunities and needs surrounding the DVSA Theory Test.

The following resources are recommended by Chris as his personal favourites. There are plenty of others and he explains what to look for when choosing a solution.

The Official Content Sources:

  • The Highway Code
  • Driving Essential Skills
  • Know Your Traffic Signs
  • DVSA Revision Bank


A theory test app should be AI (Artificial Intelligence) based. It can’t take the test for you, or make you a mid-revision cup of tea, but it can help you learn smarter not harder. These include Theory Test Pro, James May, & Driving Test Success. The AI identifies what you do and don’t get right, and asks you what you don’t know. Do NOT use Mock tests as these may bypass the benefits.
