The Ministry of Public Works and Transport (MPWT) and local private companies

will spend up to $1 million upgrading the testing facilities for those applying

for a driver's license.

A building at the Department of Land Transport

will be renovated and fitted out with new computers, software and air

conditioning by May, said Leng Thun Yuthea, director general of transport at the

MPWT.

Yuthea said the computerized test on road rules and street signs

would still take 45 minutes and be available in Khmer or English language.

The new technology would reduce the opportunity for paying off officials

for a license, said Yuthea, although the cost of the new test has yet to be

decided.

As well as taking a test on road rules, driving students are

currently required to spend a month on the road with a driving instructor.
