Driving theory test now in Polish

The Driving Instructors Association has made a Polish version of the Theory Test available on its site www.driving.org.

This translated version has been approved by The Driving Standards Agency – the government agency responsible for setting standards for drivers, riders and trainers.

For a driving theory test, a candidate who cannot read or understand written English well, can request a voiceover in one of 21 languages and that includes Polish.

A voiceover allows a candidate to hear the theory test instructions and questions through headphones.

The questions are automatically read out to an individual, where they can hear the answer options by touching the text on the screen. They are also allowed to hear the questions as many times as they like.

For the practical test, a friend or relative of the candidate can be present in the car and translate the examiner’s instructions for them. This means that providing a candidates language is in the list of voiceovers available, they should be able to take their test without problems and hopefully go on to pass.
