Delaware Driver License Practice Test Mobile Application Now Available in Spanish for Android and Windows Phone 7 Users
DOVER, Del. --(Business Wire)--
The Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles
(DMV) with development assistance from Delaware.gov
Interactive recently launched a Spanish-language version of the
Driver License Practice Test for Android and Windows Phone (News - Alert) 7 users. Both
versions can be downloaded at http://apps.delaware.gov.
The DMV website also has the
Spanish version of the test at http://www.dmv.de.gov.
If the original version of the app has already been downloaded the
language choice can be changed by updating your mobile device. The app
will auto-detect the device's default language and make the switch
DMV Director Jennifer Cohan
explained, "The DMV is constantly thinking of new ways to educate our
customers. The Spanish-language Driver License Practice Test app is a
testament to how the DMV responds to and anticipates the needs of a
diverse clientele. We are grateful to have worked with the Government
Information Center (GIC) to produce the product. Mobile Applications are
the next level in providing quality customer service to Delaware
drivers. It's my expectation that this will be just the fist of many
DMV mobile apps available in Spanish."
The Driver License Practice Test app
is designed to provide the necessary foundation for novice drivers to
meet their new responsibilities; it can also be used by existing driver
license holders as a refresher on the rules of the road. The English
version of the practice test debuted in 2011 as a free and convenient
tool to prepare future drivers for the written test required to obtain a
Delaware driver license. Driver instructors and students alike have
praised the app. The mobile practice test has proven so popular with
Delaware's Spanish-speaking community as a learning tool, that a Spanish
translation was commissioned to support mobile platforms.
"We're committed to creating new and convenient eGovernment tools for
Delaware," said Greg Hughes (News - Alert), Director of the Delaware
GIC. "Governor Markell has directed us to look for ways to make
government more efficient, effective and open; mobile apps and
eGovernment tools will help us meet that goal."
This Spanish translation app is the first that Delaware
Interactive has created for any Delaware State Agency. For those
without access to mobile apps, an online version of the practice test in
English or Spanish can be accessed through the DMV's website, www.dmv.de.gov.
