PASS YOUR DRIVING THEORY TEST PARKS IN STORES TODAY

13th March 2009

Avanquest Software Publishing, a leading consumer software and games publisher, has launched Pass Your Driving Theory Test for Nintendo DS to retail today. It is the essential interactive guide for those preparing to take their driving theory test. All 1265 official DSA questions are included for both cars and motorcycles, with users given the option to customise a revision schedule to fine tune their knowledge.

A theory test costs£30 and must be completed before learner drivers can take their practical examination. Almost 40% of those taking their theory test will fail*, which can result in having to reschedule a practical driving test. This in turn increases costs, wastes time and adds annoyance to an already stressful situation. For£19.99, Pass Your Driving Theory Test DS is a cost effective tool to ensure a first time pass.

When learning to drive, an instructor keeps a personalised record of a student’s progress. With Pass Your Driving Theory Test DS, users can do this by analysing their test results and creating a tailored revision schedule to improve specific subject areas. There are four effective test modes for users to assess themselves:

• DSA Test– In this mode, learner drivers can test themselves on questions from one of the 14 official DSA categories to improve a specific subject area

• Custom Test– This test format allows users to customise an exam to develop their knowledge by specifying the number of questions from each of the 14 categories

• Mock Theory Test– Just like the real thing, learners are given 57 minutes to answer 50 questions, enabling them to judge if they are ready for their official theory test

• Quick Test– These tests enable driving students with a couple of minutes spare to do a rapid revision session of 10-40 randomly selected, timed questions

Pass Your Driving Theory Test DS includes all 1265 of the official theory test questions, with explanations for every answer to ensure learner drivers gain a clear understanding of the subject area. It has been developed in conjunction with LDC, one of the UK’s largest driving schools, that also offers a FREE driving lesson worth£26 for every owner of Pass Your Driving Theory Test DS.

Pass Your Driving Theory Test DS is released by Avanquest Software Publishing today, priced£19.99 and available from www.amazon.co.uk, www.play.com and leading retail outlets including GAME and Morrisons.
