The official DVA Theory
Test for car drivers and motorcyclists was introduced on 1st July
1996. The purpose of the test is to encourage a thorough understanding
of the theory of driving, resulting in a greater level of safety
among new drivers. Areas of assessment include: driver attitude,
traffic signs and regulations, effects of alcohol, drugs and fatigue
on driver behaviour, and safety and environmental aspects of vehicles.
Since January 4th 2000, the test
has been presented on a touch screen system on computer terminals
at the theory test centre.
The test is available in
all of the following languages: Albanian, Arabic, Bengali, Chinese,
Farsi, Gujarati, Hindi, Kurdish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Spanish, Tamil,
