Turbocharge your lesson briefings with Road Pad, the ultimate tool for driving instructors!

Road Pad helps you create your own personal teaching aids, perfectly tailored to your local area and your way of teaching. Use Road Pad to:

• View a satellite image of any road or junction and use the built-in drawing tool to illustrate the image and instruct your pupil.

• Add road users to the screen and position them to re-create real life situations.

• Save your most commonly used images so they can be retrieved immediately, even when your network connection is slow or unavailable.

• Display and draw on any image from your iPad's photo library.

• Help your pupils to learn exactly what they should be doing in any given situation.

• Also provided is a blank drawing pad so you can easily illustrate anything that comes to mind.

How it works:

Your pupil has just made a dog's breakfast of a large roundabout. You pull over to the side of the road and open Road Pad. Select the satellite view and tap the location button. Road Pad will zoom in on your current position. Then simply pan the image over the roundabout, tap the draw button, and start illustrating how it should be done. It's that easy! If there are particular roads or junctions you find you need to illustrate regularly, these can be cached in your library for quick retrieval - regardless of network availability.


Location services and ability to download satellite images are dependent on a suitable network connection being available.

Customer Reviews

Road pad


OMG this the best instructional aid since time began. Well done Mr Beaver......you deserve a Knighthood. So looking forward to Monday morning and first lesson of the week!!!

I must have written this when I purchased your app but didn't press send.....I still stand by my review .... But now I notice quite a lot of scenes are dated. How often does google update?

Map rotation


Best thing ever done on last update to be able to rotate map, very useful and helps loads!! Thank-you !

Very useful, just one niggle...


This was one of the first apps that I put on my iPad having heard a few people mention it on an instructors Facebook forum. I find it very easy to use, being able to change pen colours really helps as I can show correct routes vs. wrong routes etc.

Like a few people have mentioned though, some areas of the maps are out of date. This is not the developers fault though as they are taken from Google Maps which is itself out of date. I can understand why some would find this frustrating as it's very annoying when you want to discuss a new junction with a pupil using this app, and of course, it's not there. Like I said though, not the dev's fault.

The only reason I gave this 3* and not 5* is purely because of the usability when you have a wifi iPad compared to 3G. I have gone around my local area and saved images of a lot of junctions that people tend to get wrong so not having the connection when on the road isn't an issue. What would be nice though is if you could use "pinch to zoom" on a saved image. I find myself having to save a roundabout a few times so I can demonstrate it with someone, usually a long range image followed by a couple of close ups. It would be a lot simpler if I could just save the long range image, then zoom in on it.

That being said, this is an issue that a 3G user wouldn't have!

Overall, a really good app which any instructor will find useful. Just remember to pre-save lots of images first if you're a wifi user!!
