NTSA Test: Kenyans aspiring to acquire driving licenses will from next month start sitting for written theory examinations set by the NTSA.

This comes in a set of NTSA test changes that have been instituted by the National Transport and Safety Authority.

“The theoretical test shall consist of a continuous assessment test administered after every 40 hours of training and a final test at the end of all the units in a module. The test shall comprise a minimum of 50 multiple-choice questions,” read the NTSA guidelines. “A performance report is prepared for each learner driver. He or she must demonstrate skills in both theory and practical lessons by attaining a pass mark of 80 percent.”

The new rules are set to be a barrier for Kenyans without formal education looking to get driving licences. The NTSA has remained silent on how illiterate Kenyans will get the licenses.

Under the current mode of testing, new drivers are tried on the theory part on a model town roads board, which checks for proficiency in road rules.

“One will not be allowed to take another test before 21 days after failing exams with those who fail theory exams required to retake the entire examination while one who fails a practical exam is required to re-sit the practical within a period not exceeding six months or register afresh and redo the course,” says a report that appeared in a local daily. “Those looking to drive Public Service Vehicles will be required to master vehicle construction and controls, self-inspection of vehicles, communication on the road, speed management, emergency manoeuvres, skid control and customer care among other skills.”
