Passing a driving test can turn out to be an expensive experience, with lessons, a practical exam and a theory test to pay for. And with a multiple choice exam and a hazard perception test, there's an awful lot to learn. This is where All in One: Driving Test software comes in. According to Avanquest, the software offers all the information learner drivers need alongside mock theory, hazard perception and even practical tests to prepare you for your test.

All in One: Driving Test not only contains all questions used by the DVLA during the 2008/2009 driving test papers but also 400 clips from the hazard perception test. These are incorporated into a number of mock tests, with the chance to interact virtually with the examiner, giving an insight into what to expect on the day.

After installating All in One: Driving Test, you are presented with a menu of seven options, in the order Avanquest recommends. First up is the Highway Code, which can be viewed as a PDF or listened to via the interactive option. This is closely followed by a comprehensive overview of road signals and signs and a number of ‘fun' tests that include a quick fire identification game of 35 signs - a slider puzzle game - which saw us rearranging patterned squares to make a road sign.

According to Avanquest, All in One: Driving Test offers all the information learner drivers need alongside mock theory, hazard perception and even practical tests to prepare you for your test.

In the Theory Test section of All in One: Driving Test, you are given an introduction to the test, as well as links back to the Highway Code with information on subjects such as driving at night and manoeuvres. Then it's time for a mock theory test. You get an hour to answer 50 questions, each having four options.

Next up is the Hazard Perception section, followed by practice clips that point out hazards with another mock test.

In the Learn2Drive section you can experience an interactive driving lesson featuring written information about how to safely implement manoeuvres when driving. The Show Me, Tell Me section provides you with videos of various things you'll be asked to show the examiner during the practical, such as opening the bonnet and checking oil levels.

Finally the Practice Test section gives you a marking form and explains its various sections. There's even the opportunity to watch a real driving test in action and note any faults the driver makes, to help you avoid the same faults yourself.
