Can apps be used offline (without Internet connection, through WiFi or mobile data)?

Apps which require an Internet connection when used

Our following Android and Apple apps require an Internet connection through which they stream audio and video content when required (avoid metered 3G/4G mobile data Internet connections to avoid data download charges from your carrier):

  • The Complete Theory Test for Cars & Bikes 2017 (Android/Apple)
    Voice-over function included
  • The Complete Theory Test for LGV & PCV 2017 (Android/Apple)
    Voice-over function included
  • The Complete Hazard Perception Test (Android/Apple)
  • Driver CPC Case Study Test for LGV & PCV Module 2 (Android/Apple)
    Voice-over function included

Apps which do not require an Internet connection when used

Our following apps can be used offline (without an Internet connection) after installation because they download all their content to the device's internal storage (those that include hazard perception therefore require about 1GB local internal storage):

  • Theory Test Kit 2017 for UK Car Drivers (Android/Apple)
  • Motorcycle Theory Test UK 2017 (Apple)
  • Theory Test 4-in-1 Bundle (Android/Apple)
  • Hazard Perception Theory Test 2017 (Android)
  • LGV & PCV Theory Test & Hazard Perception Kit 2017 (Android/Apple)
  • Road Traffic Signs UK - 2017 Edition (Android)
  • Theory Test, Hazard Perception & Highway Code Kit (Android)
  • The Highway Code UK 2017 Edition (Android)
  • Driving Theory Test & Hazard Perception 2017 Kit (Android)
  • Motorcycle Theory Test & Hazard Perception Kit (Android)
  • Trainee ADI Theory Test & Hazard Perception Kit (Android)
  • The Complete Theory Test for Trainee ADIs 2017 (Android/Apple)

Problems using Android apps offline (without Internet connection)

Some users have reported occasional issues with the second set of apps listed on Android devices above whereby they don't work unless an Internet connection is in place. If you experience this issue please:

  1. Close the app
  2. Open "Settings"
  3. Looks and touch "Apps" or "Applications"
  4. Look through the list for "Google Play Services" and touch it
  5. Touch "Storage" or "Manage Space"
  6. Touch "Clear Cache"
  7. Try the app again without an active Internet connection

Another option is to uninstall and reinstall the app, without having to pay again.

Please do contact us to confirm whether the above process resolves your difficulties using the app without an active Internet connection and (if it doesn't) please do tell us your device's make and model plus the version of Android it is running.
