The DVSA has released its strategic plan for 2019, which includes an outlook on the 2019 theory test. The plan also includes annual facts and figures for the theory test with some interesting statistics. As 2018 draws to a close, Book Theory Test Today reviews the DVSA’s 2019 theory test plans.
One of the key points from the DVSA’s strategic plan is that they will be exploring options for a future delivery model for the theory test, as the contract with current service provider, Pearson VUE, expires in 2020.
Meanwhile, 2019 theory test plans involve further development, trialling and analysing of visual media clips used as part of the exam. The DVSA views media clips as a potential alternative to better test a learner’s ability to use their driving knowledge in context. Exploring other theory test provider options, and the continued development of the theory test, represent two of the DVSA’s key objectives in 2019.
