Go Citizen is essential for candidates preparing for the Life in the UK Test or British citizenship.
Through using Go Citizen, students are able to access the latest official study materials licensed from the Home Office. The hundreds of practice test questions on offer also use the same format as the official test – it’s great practice!
Are you preparing for your driving test?
Driving Theory Test Pro is a highly realistic online simulation of the UK’s driving theory test – for all vehicles. It contains official practice questions, hazard perception video simulations and an online version of the Highway Code. It is accessible 24/7 and a valuable resource from anyone learning or wanting to refresh their skills.
All materials are licensed from the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), the organisation that sets the test.
