Driving Test News

A consultation on the use of foreign language voiceovers and interpreters on theory tests and practical driving tests has been launched.

DSA is reviewing the level of foreign language support available to candidates because of issues concerning:

  • social cohesion
  • road safety
  • fraud
  • cost savings

Options for change

The consultation sets out 3 options for changing the current level of language support:

  • removing voiceovers (except English and Welsh) on the theory test and the use of interpreters on all tests
  • removing voiceovers (except English and Welsh) on the theory test but keeping the use of interpreters on all tests
  • removing interpreters on both theory and practical tests but keeping the use of voiceovers on theory tests

Any change to the current arrangements will be subject to the outcome of the consultation, which runs until 2 April 2013.
