Iowa – June 19, 2012 – The Iowa Department of Transportation is
announcing that its popular “IA Driver Test” app, a
practice test for the real written exam that applicants must
take to get their driver’s license, is now available for Kindle devices.
The app will generate
25 questions, randomly chosen from among 69 included in the real knowledge test
given at any Iowa driver’s license station. Users can repeat the test as often
as they like; each new test generates a different set of 25 questions. The
app also tracks a user’s high scores and includes a pass/fail indicator.
The app is not just for teens, it’s great for experienced
drivers as well. Take the quiz just for fun, as a family, with friends, or as a
refresher to see if you are as smart as a 14 year old – the youngest age in
which someone in Iowa can get an instruction permit to drive.
Mark Lowe, director of the Iowa DOT’s Motor Vehicle
Division, encourages people to use the app as a practice aide after studying
the Iowa Driver’s Manual. Parents are urged to talk to their young drivers
about their test results to foster discussion about safe driving rules and
The free app, developed in partnership with Iowa
Interactive, is now available to download to your Kindle through Amazon (search
for “IA Driver Test”). The app is also available for iPad and Android devices.
Don’t be fooled by imitation apps developed by others that
may be unreliable and will charge a fee. The official Iowa DOT app is free and will
appear with the words “Iowa DOT” on the icon.
