    I was wondering what CD Roms everyone used for revising the driving theory test? I have been told that Driving Test Success 2003/2004 is very good, can anyone tell me if i should get this one and also how much it is?

    Thanks for your help

    I've got my test next week!

    Make sure you read the highway code!

    And I've got that CD, it's quite good. My driving instructor sold me a copy for £9, but I later saw it at Asda for about £5

    GET THIS ONE, i think about 99% of the questions are identically phrased exactly in the same way or in a very similar (unnoticable) way, and also much better test wise (instead of flicking through the book). also the hazard perception is ok, but i think that in the test hazard perception windows are much smaller so you have to respond more quickly. im not quite sure of the price, but one of your mates must have so just borrow it 2/3 days before the test or just get it off kazaa.. but if you really want to buy it it should set you £20 tops, but probably much cheaper than that anyway..

    hope that helps Nv

    oh right i saw it at amazon.co.uk for £5.30 + delivery + vat = £9.20

    they have added vat onto it which i didnt think they normally did? its so funny the cost of it is nearly dopuble by the time you actually order it.

    I will look in asda tommorow and hope they have it.

    I used the 'Road Sense-Hazard Perception' video. It was good in that it helped me understand what a hazard is and the different kinds, but it didn't actually provide any clips which you can actively practice (by that i mean clips which require the you to use the remote control and press something when you see a hazard). It only gave me clips to watch and say in my head when I see a hazard. Who else used this video?

    nah thats all; but you may like to know that the highway code is available on the interweb already (although you may prefer a book for night time/ toilet time reading)

    i used driving test success theory 2003/2004. i had both the questions and the hazard perception. i got them for about £5 in morrisons... maybe ask a friend though, i know me and my friends all shared a lot of stuff cos it seems silly us all buying it *although lou would like to remind you that copying is illegal*... i thought it was pretty decent

    you buy the 2 cds seperately (so it's £10 overall)- there's a question one and a hazardperception one. maybe your instructor sells them together?
