Interactive Highway Code App Launched by the DSA

By Xavier Blakeson

The Highway Code will mark its 81st birthday in true 21st century style, with the launch of a fully interactive app. The idea is the brainchild of transport secretary Justine Greening, who is determined to give the classic book a new lease of life.

The app is intended to make the Highway Code both more accessible and more fun for road users of all generations. In particular it is hoped that it will appeal to the younger generations, by enabling them to access and keep up to date with the latest driving regulations quickly and conveniently at all times.

Since its launch in 1931, the Highway Code has seen a significant number of updates and revisions to its’ guidelines, ranging from the subtle to the absurd. When it was first launched, drivers were discouraged from using their mirrors yet encouraged to sound their horn whenever overtaking!

The app is a logical progression for the Highway Code, which is already free to access and read online and can also be downloaded as an eBook. As well as this there are also Facebook and Twitter accounts providing regular updates and topical reminders.

Transport secretary Justine Greening confirmed the reasons for the changes: “The app makes it easier for everyone to keep their knowledge up to date and is a great example of how new technology can help to improve road safety.”

She also went on to comment that: “The app makes it easier for everyone to keep their knowledge up to date and is a great example of how new technology can help to improve road safety.”

The new app includes a search function to make it as easy as possible to find any rules and information that you are looking for. As well as containing the complete Highway Code contents there are also interactive features such as a stopping distance calculator, quizzes and a road sign identification tool.

The app has been welcomed by road users and Highway Code aficionados alike, as well as experienced driving school instructors who believe that the app will increase awareness amongst learner drivers, resulting in improved driving knowledge and abilities.
