Can I take my drivers license test in Chinese?

States Offering a Drivers License Test in Chinese

You can take your drivers license test in Chinese in 20 of the 50 U.S. states; however, in most cases, the road sign portion of the test is still in English. Because road signs are written in English, at least basic knowledge of the English language is required of everyone applying for a drivers license.

Test Preparation


In preparation for the drivers license test, become familiar with your state’s drivers manual, and consider participating in a drivers education course. States that offer license tests in Chinese typically publish manuals in Chinese as well. In addition, independent websites offer practice tests in Chinese.
