Driver's Ed Lite app review



Whether you're preparing to take your DMV Permit test for the first time, or you have taken it several times only to fail the theory, Driver's Ed Lite is an app that will help you study for your test from the convenience of your iPhone or iPad.

The best driving apps for iPhone

This is a free app available for download from the Education category of the App store, but note that it's a “Lite” version, so you can try out the interface and user experience to get a sample of the app. The full version is available for just $2.99, and when you consider the expense of having to reapply for the test over and over, you'll find that the full version might be worth your while if it truly helps you ace your test.

Pass Your Test With Ease

The Driver's Ed Lite app takes up a good 211 MB so you might have to clean up the clutter off your iPhone or iPad prior to installing it. Study, Tips & Tricks, Practice, and Mock Tests are the four options available on the main menu of this app.

The user interface is highly interactive and requires little input from the user most of the time. There are plenty of gesture-based controls available in this app. Users can go to the Study section to read the driver manual specific to their state. This is available in both landscape and portrait modes for ease of use.

Alternatively, users can also study the laws by topic, namely Accidents, Alertness, Attitude, Documents, Hazard Awareness, Motorway Rules, Other Types of Vehicle, and Road & Traffic Signs.

When you feel you're ready to take on the test, you can use the Mock Test section, where you'll be presented with a simulation of the actual test where questions are randomized. When you're done with the test, you'll be given a rundown of your performance, including the duration of your tests, your score, incorrect and correct answers, along with explanations for each of the questions.

Users who take multiple practice tests will also get access to a bar chart that enables them to zero in on the areas in which they need improvement.
