County libraries give free driving theory test software

Theory test: County libraries are now offering members free access to Theory Test Pro.

Learner drivers in Lincolnshire can train for their theory test for free with professional software — if they have a library card.

County libraries are now offering members free access to Theory Test Pro, an online simulation software for the UK’s driving theory test for all vehicles.

The service can be accessed online from home or library computers, and users will be prompted to enter their library card number if accessing the service from home.

Those without a library card can sign up online too.

Theory Test Pro contains the entire official test question bank, hazard perception video clips and an online version of the Highway Code.

All this material is licensed from the Driving Standards Agency, the people who set the tests.

Jonathan Platt, head of libraries and heritage at the County Council explained that Lincolnshire libraries offer several other online services.

“Members can access a wide range of reference books, such as the Oxford English Dictionary, the Encyclopaedia Britannica and Who’s Who – all free of charge.

“Add to that other online services like e-Books and e-Audio books and you can enjoy many of the benefits of an excellent local library service around the clock.”
