Brilliant app - Passed first time

This app is absolutely brilliant. I was recommended it by a police officer just a few days before my test.

I wasn’t hopeful on passing because I only revised for around 3 hours in total before my actual test. Took my test today and passed, with 47/50 on the multiple choice.

Without this app, I can guarantee you I wouldn’t have done so well. It is designed very well. The interface itself is visually appealing and not some boring two tone screen. It is very well sectioned out such as ‘Train’, ‘The James May Way’ and Road signs etc. All of which entail a different way of learning.

The training is a layered way of learning and it tests a whole range of different questions, need-to-knows and hazard perception. The James May Way allows you to really focus on your weak points to ensure you aren’t left with a poor understanding of them.

You can also access tens of videos of hazard perception in each category for example ‘Bigger Roads’ or ‘Dangerous conditions’. You can revisit the ones you aren’t sure on whenever you like.

All in all, this app was extremely helpful and it is definitely worth the money. If it helped me pass first time with around 3 hours of using it, I’m sure it’ll help you too.

Hazard perception tests are not fit for purpose

It’s impossible to know when to click the screen upon spotting a hazard. When you get your feedback, it talks you through the route, but doesn’t specifically tell you what qualifies as a hazard and what doesn’t, nor does it tell you which hazards you have and haven’t identified. There isn’t even a counter on screen to show you the hazards accruing as you go. Often, I have spotted all of the hazards identified and the speaker has the same thought process as I do, which I’ve clicked, though clearly it was too soon or too late. No indication given about when you should click upon seeing the hazard. My outcomes in this portion of the test is all over the show, but I have no guidelines for improvement. Absolutely no idea how to get better at this part, though my performance on the other sections are improving steadily.

Superb App

Given the climate I had limited choice in test dates and took the first available. This happened to be only 2 weeks away. Whilst I don’t recommend sitting your test on short notice the James May app was superb and simply a common sense approach to learning. The reminders to practice are handy if like me you’d forget your head if it wasn’t attached. The videos explaining the tests and what you may have done wrong and James talking you through the tips is very handy. Working toward the different badges also keeps you motivated. Pleased to say I past first time, even if I did find myself taking to myself in James Mays voice throughout the hazard perception part! I would highly recommend using this App. Well done all involved.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your review. Did you talk to yourself in James May's voice during the actual test? Congratulations in any case.
