Building #1 driving app in the UK

Client & product

Splink Industries approached us with the need to continue the development of the My Theory Test by James May app, originally created by another company.

My Theory Test is a mobile learning tool designed to help the UK’s future drivers pass their driving theory test. Using James's 40+ years of driving experience, his app generates a personalized training plan for users, ensuring they learn all of the material in time for their test.


It was challenging to make a rapid kick-off of the project since our team needed to implement a fast refactoring of legacy code first. After that, we continued developing the apps and meeting the client’s requirements.

Job done

In 12 months, our team of 2 frontend developers, a backend developer, QA, DevOps and a project manager scaled existing paid product versions with a free Android application. In paid iOS and Android versions, we redesigned some of the old features and enhanced the product with new ones. Now, we are responsible for maintaining all app versions.

Client feedback

Cassian Harrison
Co-founder of Splink Industries and My Theory Test App by James May

"Working with you guys has been fantastic. The level of expertise of your development team is as good as the people that we get in the UK. You've got a fantastic talent base of programmers over there in Ukraine. It's more challenging to find people of that quality in the UK.

The other thing is the methods of working that we already up in place. Which you guys work with too, which is the combination of regular meetings, key points, Slack in order to catch up with key details. It feels as efficient as it can be. "
