Test your driving skills with this free app

Bill Plant Driving School has created a free parking app to help keep your driving skills sharp. You won’t need to take to the roads, as you can do it all from the comfort of your own home.

The simulator is called Parkathon, and it challenges you to navigate your way through 10 different parking levels by finding and efficiently parking your car. It’s a great opportunity to practice for your upcoming driving test or run yourself a little refresher course if your parking skills are a tad rusty.

Get your iPads at the ready… Parkathon is free on the App store. All you have to do is install the app and you can get your foot down.

A great way to practice

Dedicating some of your free time to the app is a great way to learn what it takes to park perfectly, without putting yourself – or other drivers on the road – at risk. Every time you successfully park your car, you’ll be rewarded with gold stars. We don’t know about you, but we love gold stars. This all sounds so much better than actual lessons!

Unfortunately, though, you won’t be able to take your test through the app. But it will help you prepare for your upcoming driving test – and if you head over to the Bill Plant Driving School website, they’re now offering a post-lockdown queue jump to get you learning as soon as possible!

Challenge your friends

The question of who’s better at parking is always a hot debate amongst friends, and now you can put that debate firmly to rest with Parkathon. It’s a safe way to compete without it turning into something resembling bumper cars.

You can go head-to-head over ten different levels and even set your own rewards beyond the 3-star awards. Winner gets a £10 queue jump voucher?

Learn the basics

You may wonder how much you can actually learn about driving without getting behind the wheel of a car. But there is actually lots of theory and planning that goes into something as simple as parking. The app teaches you how to position the vehicle in relation to the space you’re trying to park in, and how to perfectly execute parking in even the tightest spots.

Knowing the correct points of a parking space and where to line them up with your car are fundamental to parking correctly. If you’re taking lessons, you’ll be taught this very early on – which is what makes this new app invaluable.

Free driving lessons… You can’t argue with that, can you?!

What are you waiting for?

Don’t wait around to get back out on the roads. Sharpen your skills or challenge your friends. Get Parkathon now while it’s free on the app store.
