Our son used this thing called a “book” that we bought for him in a place called a “bookstore”. It was by the Automobile Association and contained the Highway Code plus lots of test questions. He also went online to do test questions and practice for the video section of the test.

He also found a driving instructor that has an automatic car. He has been driving on his Texas licence for the last 7 months and should be going for his driving test soon. (He passed his theory test a few weeks back).

Oh Durhamlad!   ;D

Use this link.  I compared it to the book and it was exactly the same. I’d give you my book but I just gave it to somebody at work :(.  This seriously helped me loads cause it’s the same format as the test centres.

Haha. I had all the books,they just didn't work for me. The app was so much better for me as it is literally the questions they use on the tests. 😁
The usual. American girl meets British guy. They fall into like, then into love. Then there was the big decision. The American traveled across the pond to join the Brit. And life was never the same again.

It was a tongue-in-cheek option for nan since she said doesn’t have a mobile device for the app.  :D

Yeah this is where I'm struggling with with the Life in the UK test lol The book is just SOOOO long. I stay focused more with the online quizzes.

I had bought something for the PC but some of the info wasn't quite right so I just ditched it lol

Coolies, thanks. Aside from having to look up "pelican", I've done pretty well so far.

Pelican crossings were around when I did my test in 1972, and since then Puffin and Toucan crossings have appeared so now there are Zebra, Pelican, Toucan AND Puffin crossings. Glad I don't have to take my test again  ???
