Safe Driving for Life (revamped website)

Organisation: DVSA
Date of Launch: July 2021

The DVSA has relaunched the Safe Driving for Life website with a host of new features.

Safe Driving for Life is designed to support learners through their theory and driving tests and in becoming a life-long safe driver.

Some content – such as practice theory tests, hazard perception tests and road signs tests – can be accessed free of charge, with more available through a paid-for subscription.

The redesigned website is described as having a fresh and clean look and being easy-to-navigate.

Among the new features is a series of updated e-learning modules, which were formerly located on the Official DVSA Learning Zone. These cover all driving categories, including new modules for anyone wanting to train as an approved driving instructor (ADI).

The main e-learning dashboard also now features a ‘Test Readiness Gauge’ – giving learners an indication of when they’re ready to take their test. The gauge is based on different factors including the amount of practice questions the learner has answered correctly and how long they’ve spent studying.

Another added benefit of the new website is an increase in functionality for ADIs, who can use the platform free of charge.

Learners will be able to share their progress through the e-learning modules with their ADI and parents, allowing them to work through the theory element together.
