The smart way to pass your Driving Theory Test. Play introduction

I’m James May and this is my car driving theory app.

With the help of some rather clever developers I’ve created the ultimate tool to help you, the nation’s future drivers, pass your driving theory test. Using a bit of algorithmic wizardry and infused with my 40+ years of driving experience, my app generates a bespoke training plan for you, ensuring you learn all of the material in time for your test. All you need is a smartphone and a few spare minutes a day; you’ll hardly know you’re doing it!

A free demo version of the app is now also available on Android. You can access a free training plan each day (with multiple choice questions and hazard perception clips) to try it out – for absolutely nothing. Amazing but true. If you like the app and want to get serious about passing your driving theory test, you can then upgrade to the full version.

Did you know that over 50% of all the driving theory tests taken last year resulted in an epic fail, meaning you drivers-to-be wasted around £16 million of your hard earned cash? And the pass rate is getting worse every year.

It’s time for a fresh approach to learning Driving Theory.

Don’t fall into the trap of viewing the theory test as a minor inconvenience, cramming to learn all the material a few days before your test.

Start learning early, start learning now.

Not only will you stand a better chance of passing your test, but thanks to our revolutionary approach you’ll retain the information for longer, making you a better and safer driver for years to come.

And despite what my esteemed television co-hosts may have implied over the years, being a safe driver is much cooler than being a complete oaf.

Why this app? 7 reasons.

1 Exclusive videos

I’ll be on hand throughout to explain concepts and offer hints and tips based on my 40 years of driving experience. I’ll show you how many of the answers can be found using good old-fashioned common sense.

2 Lessons that use science to boost your memory

The algorithm in this app is based on the concept of spaced repetition learning. Put simply, information is repeated for you at the precise point where you would normally start forgetting it. And if there are questions or topics you’re struggling with, these will be repeated to you more frequently until you’ve mastered them.

3 Stay focused with a personalised daily training plan

The app will build you a personalised training plan to ensure you learn everything in time for the big day. And you can use my James May Way to practice any area of knowledge separately. You’ll only need to spend a few minutes each day practising. Waiting for a bus? On the bog? Having a cup of tea? It’s a no brainer.

4 Categories that make sense behind the wheel

Our research suggests that the majority of people learning their driving theory have already begun practical driving lessons. To help solidify the link between theory and practice, my app categorises all the DVSA mock questions under 8 headings that relate to the real world of driving, providing a more holistic approach to learning to drive. Common sense… again.

5 Complete DVSA questions, hazard perception clips and new video case studies

The learning material contained within the app is the latest licensed content from the DVSA, containing the complete 2020 practice theory question bank and practice hazard perception clips. Plus my wisdom, obviously.

6 Get ready for the real thing with timed mock tests

As well as following your personalised training plan, my app lets you take unlimited, timed mock tests combining both the multiple choice questions and the hazard perception clips – just like the real thing only without the pressure or the 1980’s institutional furniture.

7 Play road sign and braking distance games

There’s no easy way around it: road signs and braking distances are two of things you just have to learn. Thankfully, my app contains two games to give the process a bit more oomph.

"This app is the most engaging and informative theory app out there. James adding his little quirk’s to it made the whole experience less stressful. So easy to use and even quicker to learn! Would recommend to anyone looking for a theory app over all the others. Also passed first time on Friday. Give them your money! It’s worth it."
"I’m 23 and still can’t drive so safe to say I’ve tried a fair few of the apps but this is by far the best one I’ve used! The lessons are really clear and easy to digest and it has the best method of explaining the hazard perception that I’ve seen - something other apps fail to do. Could not recommend more."
"Over the moon, literally got this app a week before my test and passed."
"I only had this app a week and my theory test was coming up. I passed my theory test I really think this app give you the right information in the right ways of explaining it. It was also really enjoyable to do during my training I wasn’t off it one bit. So happy to have found out about this app it’s brilliant. Also who could ask for a better teacher than James May.”

"I used the other paid for apps, and this is by far the best one available by a long shot. James May has used an interesting method of making this almost into a game, which makes it very engaging.All in all, I’d much rather spend £5 on this app, then give it to the DVSA."
"Good fun, makes learning enjoyable. I’ve learnt loads already”
"Best app for 17 year olds. Easily the best driving test app. Actually makes learning for the test not insanely boring and you get to learn with 1/3 of the greatest three men to exist.”
"This app is great for young people like me learning there theory test content. It has everything you need in a simple, easy to navigate and understand layout. I like the videos of James May rambling on about each topic as it adds a certain charm and comedic factor to the experience and is actually useful. Altogether Id say it’s way more enjoyable to use than the official DVLA theory app and costs the same so just get this one!”
"Best app for revising! Every questing I practiced I saw in the real test (a couple worded slightly differently but still the same idea) very helpful tool and the hazard perception practices where fantastic and made life so much easier!"
"This app is engaging, informative and a great way to practice as it covers all aspects of a theory test. Highly recommend to beginners or anyone in need of a refresher!”
"Next level compared to the others! Having used one of the other apps previously, I can honestly say this one is leagues ahead. More features, easier to use, and so much better all round. Highly recommend!”
"So easy to use, videos loaded fast, info easy to read. Love how the questions I got wrong in my training programme reappeared in the mini test - it actually felt like I leant something!! The tutorials with James are lols and the achievements section is motivating.”
"This is the app I’ve been looking for. Makes a rather dull subject so much more fun. I’ve looked at several other apps and nothing came close to this!”
"Really love the approach and the vids from James, it brings the whole experience to life much more than the other apps."
"I downloaded this app a week ago and have completed 50% of the training, I just tried the practice theory questions on the DVSA website and got 48/50 on my first try. I love this app and have recommended it to everyone that’s my age. The hazard perception tests are also extremely helpful. This is 100% worth the £4.99 and I can’t praise it enough, it doesn’t feel like revising."
"Brilliant app helped me pass my theory test first time with ease."
"Took test Friday and passed first time using your app! Thank you. Most engaging theory app out there!"

"I failed 3 times with other apps and this one I passed straight away! Can not recommend more.”
"Would have definitely failed my theory without this app. 10/10 would definitely recommend.”

"I've only started using this but I can tell the huge difference comparing to the other DVLA app which was so boring.”
"I have dyslexia and the official DVLA app just doesn’t work with me. However after coming across this app I have been able to understand the question that I’m being asked and understand the road in a more efficient way. The app has videos of James talking through what is being asked and the question are worded for you in a specific way for you to understand."
"Really good app. helped me a lot on the run up to my theory. Really liked how it was just simple and very well explained.”
"Really good app I failed 4 times using the normal apps which you find on the App Store. I download this and with a couple weeks revision I passed."
