At-home drivers ed test can prepare you for the real thing | News
IOWA--The Iowa Department of Transportation has released an Android version of its popular “IA Driver Test” app, a practice test for the real exam that applicants must take to get their driver’s license.
The app generates 25 questions, randomly chosen from among 69 included in the real knowledge test given at any Iowa driver’s license station. Users can repeat the test as often as they like; each new test generates a different set of 25 questions. The app also tracks a user’s high scores.
The app is not just for teens, it’s great for experienced drivers as well. Take the quiz just for fun, as a family, with friends, or as a refresher to see if you are as smart as a 14 year old – the youngest age in which someone in Iowa can get an instruction permit to drive.
Mark Lowe, director of the Iowa DOT’s Motor Vehicle Division, said, “It might not be as easy as you think. Iowa's traffic laws are always changing and it’s likely there will be a question or two that stump even the most seasoned driver.”
Lowe encourages people to use the app as a practice aide after studying the Iowa Driver’s Manual. Parents are urged to talk to their young drivers about their test results to foster discussion about safe driving rules and behaviors.
The free app, developed in partnership with Iowa Interactive, is now available to download to your Android phone or tablet through the Google Play Store (search for “IA Driver Test). It is also available for iPads through the iTunes Store (search for “IA Driver Test for iPad”)
