Mobile Driving School is a driving school based in Lancashire, United Kingdom.

DPS Computing Limited developed the website to the clients specifications using a CMS (Content Management System). We also provide updates and maintenace for the website.

In addition to the public area of the site, a special pupils only area has been created to display pupil only information with the ability for the client to easily customise the content that each individual pupil has access to, giving the ability to focus each individual pupil on information relevant to them.

The Mobile Driving School website is also hosted by DPS Computing and we registered the domain name for the client.

In addition we have developed a bespoke interactive web application and granted a license to Mobile Driving School to use it, entitled, DPS Drive - Interactive Theory Test which provides its users with the ability to practice the theory test questions for the UK driving test using the sample revision banks supplied by the DVSA (Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency).
