Driving provides freedom to millions of people across the UK (as well as beyond the borders), but learning to drive can be a stressful and/or tedious experience. There are numerous resources available for you to build up knowledge and prepare for examination, and now the AA (Automobile Association) has launched an app for Windows Phone to help you pass your theory test.
If you're not aware what the theory test is or haven't yet started driving lessons in the UK (or Europe), it's a section of the examination process that's required before taking the final practical exam. The actual test itself is made up of two parts - questions and hazard perception. AA Theory for Windows Phone helps you out with the former part of the test, providing official Driving Standards Agency (DSA) questions in an exam-like situation.
The cool thing about AA Theory is there's not simply a sample of questions, but also the option to view all questions, sorted by category.
So what are the main features of the official AA Theory app? You can choose in increments of 10 the amount of questions you wish to practice on - perfect if you're in a hurry and can only do a handful. Because the app sports the official questions, you'll also be prepared for whatever you'll face in the theory test, lifting a weight of your mind. If you happen to get a question or two wrong, you'll have a quick explanation of that correct answer.
When you're ready, test mode is available to mimic an actual test with 50 minutes to answer 50 questions. After you've completed the questions, a percentage score will be displayed, alerting you as to whether or not you've done well enough to pass. Strongest and weakest scored categories will be shown to help you focus on revision in certain areas.
The UI is well laid out and while following the Modern UI, AA has worked its own design into the app. The best part about AA Theory is you'll be able to practice the questions and more while on the move - no need to carry around a 500 page book.
You can download AA Theory from the Windows Phone Store for £1.99.
