Written Driver’s Testing Now in Simplified Chinese
Written driver’s license testing is now available in Simplified Chinese, according to the Hawai’i Department of Transportation.
The test, which was originally offered in Traditional Chinese, was translated and made available to assist additional individuals in learning the safety rules of roadways in Hawai’i.
Although the tests are translated, those interested in applying and testing for a driver’s license are still required to learn important symbols and words common on American roadways.
The test is now available in 14 different languages, including English, Hawaiian, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Chuukese, Ilocano, Japanese, Korean, Marshallese, Samoan, Spanish, Tagalog, Tongan, and Vietnamese.
