From the DVSA:

We are thrilled to share our new Safe Driving for Life website with learner drivers and the public.

We are doing this through a national press announcement, social media and by emailing theory and driving test candidates.

A reminder of our new content and features

The new Safe Driving for Life website has been developed with feedback from ADIs and National Associations Strategic Partnership (NASP).

The exciting new features in the eLearning subscriptions include:

  • a test readiness tool that can track a:
    • pupil’s theory test revision and indicates when they are fully prepared for the exam
    • potential driving instructor’s theory test revision and indicates when they are fully prepared for their ADI part 1 exam
  • ability for pupils to share their theory test progresswith their instructor
  • ability to share progress with any friends or family they have private practice with, ensuring it supports tuition from a professional instructor
  • eLearning gift subscription, from £15, so family and friends can buy a learning package for someone who needs it.

This is alongside the fantastic free content that is available to anyone, such as topical blog articles, free practice theory tests and comprehensive advice pages, which includes top tips for the driving test.

Please note the new website feature that allows learners to link to their instructor via the site is available to you for free if your pupil has bought an eLearning subscription.

You will also be able to see your pupil’s progress and revision after they have passed their test; helping to address knowledge gaps in future lessons.

How you can support us

We believe that the new website will help learners prepare for their theory and driving tests, reducing the number of re-sits adding to the demand for tests.

If your pupils are preparing for their theory test, direct them towards the website.

When you refer someone and they go on to buy their first eLearning subscription from the site, you will earn reward points. These reward points can then be built up and used to claim an Amazon gift card.

You can find out how to refer students for points via your account on the website.

Students can also reduce the cost of an eLearning subscription by completing a free practice test on the site.They will see a discount code once they have completed the practice tests.

This can be used for a discount on gifted eLearning subscriptions, and in the website shop where you’ll find the official DVSA book and L-plates available.

Just the beginning

We still have other big plans for the Safe Driving for Life website. This includes the development of eLearning subscriptions to help candidates also prepare for their driving test and further build upon their knowledge and skills.
