Driving school theory tests to be done on digital platforms

Driving school theory tests are set to be automated in a new bid to tame wayward examiners from the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA).

This migration from analogue to digital theory testing will be sponsored by the NTSA and the European Union. According to the NTSA, the automated process will ensure the authority conducts driver tests efficiently and effectively, and in the process improve the quality of testing as a result of reduced human interaction.

“The long-term objective of this project is to enhance safety through licensing of the right quality of drivers,” said NTSA in a statement.

“The desired role of the automated theory test is to ensure elimination of human interaction in driver testing to improve the quality of drivers on our roads through improved driver skill, knowledge and the right behaviour towards driving.”

Currently, driver testing in Kenya is conducted through theory tests and practical examination.

Theory involves reading of the traffic signs and Highway Code (oral), model town board. Practical tests on the other hand involve handling and manoeuvring of a vehicle.
