New Driver Testing Makes Passing Easier

A new driver licensing evaluation system will result in less drivers failing their road driving test.

3260875_0Educación Vial (Driver Education) announced that it will, starting today,be using a point system and only an 80% passing grade is required to pass the driving test.

Under the new system, drivers will no longer have to obtain a perfect score to pass. The change is expected to result in between 5% and 10% more drivers and reduce the current 45% fail rate.

According to Educación Vial each week some 3.500 people take the drivers exam.

The new system also intends to eliminate the “subjectivities” of the examiners. The new system and the handheld electronic devices used by the exmaniners comes at a cost of ¢70 million colones (for handhelds) and another ¢50 million colones for the printers (which have yet to be fully purchased).

The change also expects to eliminate the number of appeals by drivers failing the drivers test.

Also, aspiring drivers will be given a detailed report of their errors, but only if they request it.
