Re-use of DSA information
In order for the Driving Standards Agency (DSA) to ensure that appropriate learning material is available in the retail market to support learner drivers, DSA licenses 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.
DSA also publishes its own official learning materials but by allowing the re-use of this copyright material it offers learner drivers more choice.
Information regarding the re-use of The Highway Code , The National Driving or Riding Standards™ and the syllabus, can be found at the National archives website, and facilitated by an Open Government Licence. For information regarding the re-use of traffic signs please visit dft.gov.uk/trafficsignsimages.
The different types of Crown Copyright licence currently issued can be found under the ’Licence Information’ heading on the left hand side.
Whilst we actively encourage the licensed re-use of our material, we will protect it against any unlicensed use. We constantly monitor the use of our material and will pursue any case where material has been used without our permission. We strive to remedy breaches amicably but we will take any necessary legal action in order to protect Crown Copyright. All infringements should be brought to the attention of the DSA’s Intellectual Property Department.
