New 2013 editions of official Driving Standards Agency (DSA) theory test for motorcyclist software now include more help than ever before.

The motorcycle theory test is an essential part of the learning to ride process. It allows learner riders to demonstrate that they have a clear understanding of the rules of the road and that they recognise their responsibility as a road user. To really benefit from taking the test, candidates need to develop a deep understanding of riding theory - especially since the live test questions are no longer published.

DSA's official publishing partner, TSO (The Stationery Office), has been working with educational specialists and subject matter experts to enhance the theory test products and develop them into valuable learning tools for motorcycle and car test candidates. Following the success of the revamped theory test books which published earlier this year, the best-selling software range has also been updated. The new 2013 edition of The Official DSA Theory Test for Motorcyclists DVD-ROM makes passing the test simpler. The material is delivered in clear, bite-sized chunks to help learners really understand the theory, whatever their learning style. It includes hundreds of official theory test revision questions, covering the same topics as the actual test.

The DVD-ROM encourages candidates to follow a three-step learning process: study, practise, test yourself. Recognising that people learn in different ways, the study section caters for different learning styles. Each section includes lots of photos and diagrams to illustrate key points, definitions to describe tricky words and top tips to highlight important information. The learning experience is multi-dimensional, with links to online videos and interactive activities where candidates can learn more and a voiceover option to help those who learn best by listening. There are also tips on how to study aimed at providing learners with all the support they need to prepare for their test.

Self-assessment is made easy with clear progress tracking throughout each section. Feedback is also provided on which topics need more revision to bring the learner up to test standard and make them safe on the road. Once the learner is confident on each topic, they can take mock tests. They are just like the real thing and will give candidates an idea of whether they have the right level of knowledge and understanding for the actual test.

The DVD-ROM is available as a stand-alone product, compatible with both PC and Mac (ISBN 9780115532610) and is also available as part of The Official DSA Biker Pack (ISBN 9780115532634). The Official DSA Theory Tests for Motorcyclists Pack (2013 edition) (ISBN 9780115532696) is available exclusively from TSO and includes help for the hazard perception test. An interactive downloadable version will also soon be available (ISBN 9780115531989).
