In order for the Driving Standards Agency to ensure that appropriate learning material is available in the retail market to support the learner/novice driver, the DSA licences the Official DSA Theory Test question banks and 16 simulated Hazard Perception Test video clips for use by other publishers by way of a Crown Copyright Licence Agreement. The DSA also publishes its own Official learning materials but by allowing the use of this copyright material subsequently permits anyone to use the official DSA theory test questions in their products and therefore offers the learner driver more choice.  For more information on the types of Crown Copyright Licences available please click on the licence information on the top left hand side of this page.

Information regarding the reuse of The Highway Code can be found at the Direct.gov website, and facilitated by a “click-user” licence obtained by the Office of Public Sector Information. For information regarding the reuse of traffic signs please visit http://www.dft.gov.uk/trafficsignsimages
