Cyber highway: Road testing has now reached cyber space

The Ministry of Transport and Communications has invested about US$2 million (P19 million) to install an Electronic Road Testing technique to conduct drivers testing examination.

The project entails full computerisation of the testing ground.

The initiative, which includes the installation of sensors in testing cars, originates from Korea. Speaking to Mmegi during the groundbreaking ceremony on Friday, Project Coordinator, Ming Bong Kwon said there will be sensors on the ground which report on the mistakes done by the candidate. “There will be no cheating. This system will be computer programmed and it will indicate all the mistakes and the correct processes. It will include all aspects, the seat belt, the gears, the speed, the indicators and others,” he said. Kwon said the system will reduce corruption and clients would not complain as much as they used to because all the marks will be processed through the machine without human interference. “The machine will record the voices and there will also be a video recording during the tests. So this will be a fair and transparent testing system,” said Kwon.
