Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book for the purpose of this review. I received no payment and was not required to write a positive review.
Anyone who is learning to drive should have a copy of the Highway Code and will need to know its contents in order to pass the theory test.
While software-based learning system for the theory test are increasingly popular, they are quite expensive – and all the information you need is contained in the Highway Code book, which sells for just £2.50.
If you want to save money and choose this option, you have two choices. The first – obvious – choice, is to buy The Official Highway Code, published by The Stationery Office (the government’s publishers).
However, I think I may have found a better alternative. Haynes now offers its own version, called Highway Code For Drivers.
This also costs £2.50 and contains the official Highway Code – but it also includes a basic car maintenance and troubleshooting section that includes a lot of useful information for inexperienced drivers (and for some who are experienced!).
Haynes recently sent us a copy of Highway Code For Drivers and it seems like an excellent little book. As well as the Highway Code, it includes information on:
- Basic servicing tasks (e.g. changing oil or changing a wheel)
- Recognising different types of leak, noise and exhaust smoke
- Car cleaning
- MOT preparation
- Car security
I would recommend it to anyone who is learning to drive or who is generally a bit unsure about driving and owning a car.
