Our website uses cookies. By using our website and agreeing to this policy, you consent to our use of cookies in accordance with the terms of this policy.

  1. 1. What information do we collect?
    1. We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal information:
      1. a. information about your computer and about your visits to and use of this website (including your IP address, geographical location, browser type and version, operating system, referral source, length of visit, page views, and website navigation);
      2. b. information relating to any transactions carried out between you and us on or in relation to this website, including information relating to your activity on this website as well as any purchases you make of our goods or services;
      3. c. information that you provide to us for the purpose of registering with us;
      4. d. information that you provide to us for the purpose of subscribing to our website services, email notifications and/or newsletters;
      5. e. any other information that you choose to send to us; and
  2. 2. Cookies
    1. A cookie consists of a piece of text sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.
    2. We use cookies for two purposes only:
      1. 1. To support the idea of a “session” – i.e. to allow us to recognise “you” as “you” from one page request to another. This is an extremely common use of cookies. No personal information is retained in the cookie. Sites that require you to login and which provide you with an account, almost always need to use cookies in this way.
      2. 2. To support the retention of your user name on your own PC, so that you don’t have to re-type it each time you visit. Note that this only happens if you personally request us to remember your username by ticking the box on the login page.
    3. Driving Test Success Online does not use cookies for any other purpose. However, other services that embed the Online Learning Facility may use cookies for other reasons.
    4. Session cookies will ordinarily be deleted from your computer when you close your browser (note they may survive the closure of a browser tab) and deletion of cookies is to some extent controlled by browser settings. The cookie that we use when you ask us to remember your login will remain stored on your computer until it is deleted by you.
    5. We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of this website. Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies, which are stored on users' computers. The information generated relating to our website is used to create reports about the use of the website. Google will store this information. Google's privacy policy is available at:

    7. We may publish Google Adsense interest-based advertisements on our website. These are tailored by Google to reflect your interests.

    8. Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one.
