TouchScreen Terminals

The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is using automated TouchScreen Terminals (TSTs) to administer knowledge tests. TSTs allow the quick transfer of electronic data, help decrease DMV field office wait times and reduce the possibility of fraud.

TouchScreen Testing

The TSTs replace the traditional pencil and paper knowledge tests with automated knowledge tests. Using the TSTs, applicants can complete a variety of tests, including the basic driver license and commercial knowledge tests. Applicants are guided through the testing process and given an immediate response if a question is answered incorrectly. Once the applicant completes the test, the TST will display a pass or fail notification.

The commercial driver license exam and motorcycle exam are only available in English and Spanish.

The basic driver license knowledge exam is available in the following 32 language options on the TSTs:

English French Japanese Tagalog/Filipino
Spanish German Korean Thai
Amharic Greek Laotian Tongan
Arabic Hebrew Polish Turkish
Armenian Hindi Portuguese Vietnamese
Cambodian Hmong Punjabi  
Chinese Hungarian Romanian  
Croatian Indonesian Russian  
Farsi/Persian Italian Samoan  

Audio versions of the knowledge exam are also available in the same languages. For more information about knowledge tests, including sample tests, click here.
