Last month we let you know we'd be starting some research into how we can better prepare learner drivers for their test.
We wanted to confirm this research is still running until early 2019, with some learner drivers being contacted by text message.
If your pupil receives a text message from 'DVSA.GOV.UK' or the phone number ending 284, please reassure them this is a legitimate message.
Why are we carrying out this research?
The research is being carried out to make sure learner drivers:
are better prepared to take their test
don't take their test before they’re ready
are safer on the roads once they've passed
