End to foreign language driving tests
17 Oct 2013

Driving test candidates will no longer be able to use foreign language voiceovers and interpreters on their test from 7 April 2014.

The move, announced today (10 October 2013) by the new Road Safety Minister Robert Goodwill, follows a public consultation.

Currently people can:

  • take their car and motorcycle theory tests with a voiceover in 1 of 19 foreign languages
  • use interpreters on theory tests and practical tests

This will stop from 7 April 2014.
