To date more than 70% of questions have been answered correctly, with women getting 12% more correct answers than men!

The miDrive Theory Test Leaderboard tracks every question answered in a head-to-head game and shows which users are leading the way in the weekly league. The top ten users in the league table qualify for 20% off driving lessons booked with miDrive!

Theory Test by miDrive moves revising for the test into the 21st Century, using mobile app technology and gamification to make learning fun.”

“The phenomenal success of the app in its first two months has surpassed all expectations. We could not have imagined our users answering two million questions in less than eight weeks.”
