How to Pass Your Driving Test' on Nintendo DS features a reference section, where the user can access video and text information for advice on preparing for the theory test and explain the process involved in passing the test. It makes the learner more aware of what is expected in the various elements of the driving test by covering several topics.
Practice mode allows the learner explore the knowledge they need for their official test in the form of three minigames designed around the DSA content principles.
