New CDs for learner drivers

29 October 2004

Two new CD-ROMs have been launched to help learner drivers pass their theory test and improve motorists’ knowledge of the Highway Code.

Interactive Highway Code costs £6.99

Two new CD-ROMs have been launched to help learner drivers pass their theory test and improve motorists’ knowledge of the Highway Code.

The Interactive Highway Code is produced by the Institute of Advanced Motorists and road safety group Brake.

As well as containing the full Highway Code, with every rule and sign explained, the CD-ROM has a set of multiple-choice questions and quizzes to test users on their knowledge.

A hazard-detection section allows users to spot potential dangers on interactive photos of real-world situations. Animations give examples of ideal driving behaviour, while a section on the Green Cross Code teaches safe crossing skills.

A second CD-ROM, called Pass Your Driving Test Safely Step by Step, is sponsored by Ford and uses 3D graphic animations to take learners through 100 driving lessons. Users can select one of four different camera viewpoints to watch lessons from different angles.

The disc includes the typical questions learners will face when they sit their theory test, alongside hazard perception videos and a section highlighting the hazards posed by motorway driving.

The Interactive Highway Code is available for £6.99 plus £1.95 postage and packing from the Institute of Advanced Motorists at www.iam.org.uk or by calling 020 8996 9600.

Pass Your Driving Test Safely costs £29.99 and is available at HMV, Argos, Index, Waterstones, Amazon and Game. Phone 01204 669566 for a full list of stockists or visit www.absolutemedia.co.uk.
