Just wondering what books my 17 year old needs for preparing for his driving test? I have looked on Amazon but there seem to be lots of different items. If anyone is able to advise exactly what I need that would be great please.
Many thanks.

There is an app - don't bother with the book.

I passed my theory first time in May last year and found this app really useful - it also has hazard perception on it. I tried a few but this was definitely the closest to the actual test.

Other than the Highway code I've never read another driving related book before or after passing my practical test!

Sorry - this (android) app

@BlueEyedFloozy thanks that’s great. But the Highway Code book was useful? Thanks

Not particularly - i guess it's handy but most of it is just common sense.

There are a few bits I skim read if I would like to know specifically i.e. double checking of it's ok to park on the opposite side of the street 🤦

This might sound like a daft queary but they recently added a manoeuvre - pull up on the wrong side of the road where it's safe to do so and reverse 2 car lengths... This confused me no end as the highway code says not to do it so I had to double check the parking bit! I don't think I could just read it cover to cover though.
