Motoring: Driving schools battle it out.

LEARNER drivers will find it even more difficult to take to the roads from this spring.

They will need higher pass marks from the beginning of March, and standards are due to be raised twice more this year.

The result is a fierce battle for business between the main driving schools, with the AA and BSM in particular claiming monopolies on success. According to BSM, continuous refinements to the test over the past few years have opened up a wide and measurable gap between the leading schools and the also-rans.

AA Driving Schools has just launched on-line theory test training.

The test is designed to help learners prepare for driving tests and gives an idea of the sort of questions they could be asked.

The two mock theory tests have 35 multiple choice questions and both last for about 40 minutes, with extra time given if required. On completion of the test the final score is given, when pupils can review their answers to see how many were correct.
