DPS Computing Website & Blog Update – 24/01/2015

Welcome to the first post of 2015 from DPS Computing!  Happy New Year everyone!

Firstly I’d like to say apologies for not blogging recently – I’ve been very bad but I am working to get back in to the swing of things!

Just to keep you all updated:

I am aware of the redirection issue on the main DPS Computing website (where all links are currently showing the homepage) and I’m working on fixing this ASAP.

Also, I am aware some images from previous blog posts are no longer displaying.  I’m also working on fixing this ASAP.

In addition to that, I’m also working on some new blog posts so check back soon for some more exiting content!

I’ve been quite busy recently as well with updates to DPS Drive – with even more to follow shortly!

Thanks for your patience,

David.

DPS Drive – Case Study Examples (CSE) Launches With First Case Study!

DPS Computing Limited is proud to announce the launch of the brand new (and free!) DPS Drive – Case Study Examples (CSE) package.  The first case study in CSE has gone live this evening.

DPS Drive – Case Study Examples is aimed to complement DPS Drive – Interactive Theory Test (ITT), released this summer by DPS Computing Limited.  While the interactive theory test helps learner drivers get to grips with the driving theory and the types of questions that are asked during a theory test, DPS Drive – CSE puts the questions into a context and format that you can expect to be similar to that faced in the theory test centre.

The first Case Study Example contained in DPS Drive – CSE has been provided and kindly licensed to DPS Computing Limited by the Driving Standards Agency.

DPS Computing Limited is working with fully qualified Advanced Driving Instructors (ADIs) to create more realistic case study examples to enable us to continue releasing more case studies at regular intervals.

DPS Drive – Case Study Examples is the second release by DPS Computing Limited, as well as the second release in the DPS Drive line of products.

While DPS Drive – Case Study Examples (CSE) was initially conceived as a paid for add on to DPS Drive – Interactive Theory Test, the decision was made to release it under a free-to-use model.  There are a number of advantages to this.  Firstly, you get it for no additional cost (always a bonus!).  Secondly, it is accessible to both current DPS Drive – ITT (DPS Computing) customers and non customers alike.  Thirdly, by releasing it under a free-to-use model we can release case studies as and when they are finished and become available.  Under the pay model, we would have had to complete all of the case studies prior to release, thereby delaying the release date.

DPS Drive – Interactive Theory Test (ITT) and DPS Drive – Case Study Examples (CSE) have naturally been designed to complement each other.

You can access DPS Drive – CSE here.

Next Product In DPS Drive Lineup Revealed – FREE Case Studies!

DPS Computing

Following up on the release of DPS Drive – Interactive Theory Test (ITT), DPS Computing Limited is proud to announce the next product in the DPS Drive lineup, named DPS Drive – Case Study Examples (CSE for short!).

DPS Drive – CSE will include case studies that are typically found within the theory test that you take while learning to drive.

DPS Drive - Interactive Theory Test (ITT) - Home Screen / Main MenuThe Driving Standards Agency has produced a short excerpt (shown below) which explains what case studies are and why they have been introduced:

“On 7th May 2008, the Rt Hon Ruth Kelly, MP, Secretary of State for Transport launched the Learning to Drive public consultation, setting out proposals to reform the way that people learn to drive and are tested.  The consultation closed on 6th October 2008 with almost 7,000 responses.  The Report on Consultation explained Ministers’ decisions about the package of changes on which we consulted.  There was widespread, strong agreement that the introduction of case studies into the theory test would help to better assess whether learns have understood driving theory.

The Driving Standards Agency (DSA) therefore introduced case studies into the theory test for car drivers and moped/motorcycle riders from 28th September 2009, and the case study scenarios will be taken from the existing theory test question bank.”

As with the theory test questions featured in the Interactive Theory Test, the DSA no longer release the live question banks that are actually in use.  This is the same for case studies.  The theory test questions and case studies are indicative of the type that you would face in your theory test, but are not the actual questions / case studies – as with all revision materials out there (even the DSA’s own official revision materials).

DPS Drive – CSE will at first include one case study, which has been licensed to DPS Computing Limited by the DSA.

However, DPS Computing Limited is working closely with Advanced Driving Instructors to create more case studies to include in DPS Drive – Case Study Examples.

And the best part?  Well we’ve saved that till last!

DPS Drive – Case Study Examples (CSE) will be available free of charge!  Therefore DPS Drive – CSE will be available to both customers and non-customers, however it is designed to complement DPS Drive – Interactive Theory Test (ITT) and will be geared in a way that complements the Interactive Theory Test software – which we highly recommend for your revision!

‘Ask An Expert’ Added To DPS Drive – Interactive Theory Test Lineup!

Question Mark - Puzzle

Following the recent launch of DPS Drive – Interactive Theory Test (ITT), DPS Computing Limited has been investigating a number of ways in which we can add more features to the products – at no extra cost to you, the customer.

The latest feature that we can announce, and will launch immediately, is our ‘Ask An Expert’ feature.

So, what is Ask An Expert?

Well, we understand that sometimes you may have questions regarding your theory test.  These might be general questions such as ‘how do I book my theory test’ or ‘how many questions are asked on my theory test’.  Equally, they may be more specific questions, even questions relating to a practice question that you have encountered in DPS Drive – Interactive Theory Test.  Whatever the question regarding your theory test is, or any of the content in DPS Drive – Interactive Theory Test, our panel of experts are waiting to receive and answer your questions.

All of our experts are fully qualified Advanced Driving Instructors, who currently teach pupils in the UK to drive and have a full, valid and current permit to offer driving instruction in the UK.  So, you can be sure that the answers you get from our experts are correct, of a high quality and compliant with the current theory test rules, regulations and practices.

DPS Computing Limited have added this feature so that you can be sure that any uncertainties you have regarding your theory test can be answered quickly, efficiently and correctly.

The Ask An Expert feature is available to all current DPS Drive – Interactive Theory Test customers as well as, obviously, all future customers ordering DPS Drive – Interactive Theory Test.

To access this feature, simply select the new ‘Ask An Expert – DPS Drive – ITT’ menu option from within your personalised customer area.

Finally, we’d like to wish the best of luck to all DPS Drive – ITT customers taking their theory test in the near future :).
