    Against the T's&C's to obtain the actual exam questions for IT certifications, but its perfectly acceptable to obtain and 'revise' actual DVLA Theory Test questions?

    lol, I didn't know that.

    I remember when I took the test. I was just told to read the whole highway code and I could get tested on anything.

    They have probably made it easy because some of the kids today are really thick. I have to work with some and they are retarded.

    One kid I know bought a car before realising he couldn't afford the insurance this same kid got a a credit card and thought the bank was just being nice to him and giving him a card with £400 limit. He never knew he had to pay it back.

    Im afraid that its expected these days to get something for nothing so that doesnt surprise me much GBL. Some people just dont get exposed to what having or not having money actually means so they dont know any different, they just expect it to grow on tree's.

    It's a bit like when I was at uni, we got past exam papers that had questions that were in the actual exam that I sat.

    I guess it was about knowing the format and type of questions that would be asked, rather than the giving people the actual answers to the questions.

    Each vendor/certification body has it's own rule/regs and T&C's that people have to adhere to if they want to be legit.

    While I do find it funny that you can get the official exam questions, there's also 2 other exams that you have to pass in order to obtain the full driving licence. And it's very hard to know or predict the actual driving test :)

    with the Theory - the government gains. more people on the road, more drivers. more more... of course there is the down side

    with the IT side - the government does not gain as much - leaves the regulations to a third party
