For some would-be drivers, the theory exam looks more like a language testFriday, 20 April 2018 16:44
That means the language prerequisites for preparing for the theory exam are even more important today than those required to prepare for acquiring Belgian nationality, notes Uptia, which feels that this is not right.
"The examination for the driver’s license should not assess language knowledge but good driving skills,” says Uptia. Moreover, it adds, “the driver’s license is a means of integration and facilitates the exercise of a profession.”
Uptia adds that it does not understand why the interpretation system was changed. “It appears from parliamentarians’ questions that the new regulations allow for reduced workloads and costs,” it notes, “but interpretation costs are borne by the candidates.”
