Does the motor vehicle office accommodate Spanish speaking drivers?

Forty of the 50 U.S. states are currently prepared to accommodate Spanish-speaking drivers. DMV locations in these 40 states offer a drivers license test in Spanish, and typically publish driving manuals in Spanish as well.

Before you head to your nearest DMV location, though, be sure to call ahead and make sure Spanish-speaking accommodations are available. Some locations might have translators always on site, while others might require applicants who speak English as a second language to make an appointment if they're going to need assistance. Too, some states might offer accommodations for Spanish-speaking drivers only at certain DMV branches.

Road Signs and the Drivers License Test

Because signs on the road are written in English, the road sign portion of the license test requires at least basic knowledge of the English language of all drivers. Taking a few practice tests, or possibly a drivers education course, will help you become familiar with English road signs and earn your drivers license.
