Austria: Vienna to abolish Turkish-language driving theory test

There will no longer be Turkish-language driving license theory tests in Austria starting from 2019, the country’s Transport Minister Norbert Hofer announced on Saturday. The minister, who belongs to the far-right Freedom Party, said the move was a cost-cutting measure. However, candidates will still be able to take the test in English, Croatian and Slovene, the latter two languages being... Еще protected by a treaty. Turkish is reportedly the second-most popular language used to take the test, after German. A driving instructor in Vienna, Unal Haci, said almost half of his clients had Turkish roots. And even though many speak fluent German, up to 40 percent take their final test in Turkish. «Integration and road safety should not be mixed,» Haci stated from the Austrian capital on Sunday. «The thing is that you can only learn things if you understand them. So it is important to make it understandable, which finally helps increase road safety.»
