Changing the way you learn driving theory

Mr Carter set up Colour Academy Books in October last year after failing his driving theory test the first time. He realised he’s a visual learner and set up a colouring book for test-takers to study in a more engaging way. The book can be bought online and is on trial in all major Waterstones branches.

WHAT’S YOUR BUSINESS CALLED?
Colour Academy Books

WHERE IS IT BASED?
Edinburgh

WHY DID YOU SET UP THE BUSINESS?
I FAILED my theory test the first time I sat it. My mum bought me and my brother a theory book for Christmas. My younger brother wanted to beat me by passing. I graduated uni and then sat the theory test in summer 2017 having not really opened the book. I failed by one question. Rather than putting myself down I realised why I didn’t want to read the book – 950 practice questions is boring.
