FIVE learner drivers were the first to experience the new computerised exam as part of the driving test. The system is being trialled in Mallorca before it’s expanded across Spain, and the exam can be taken at the Provincial Traffic Department headquarters, instead of the Son Castello industrial site.The test can be taken in five different languages – Catalan, Spanish, English, French or German – and the database has 16,000 different questions, which are randomly selected for each person.Head of the department, Maria Teresa Sau, explained that the exam would still have the same structure: 30 multiple-choice questions in 30 minutes, and only three mistakes allowed to pass.“However, the system is more intuitive now thanks to a tactile screen,” said Ms Sau.
