Kick-off meeting Internal CIECA Project - Development of the theory test - Munich, Germany, 18 March 2008.

The CIECA theory test project aims to collate the knowledge and experience of as many testing organisations as possible in order to work towards more effective theory testing in the future.

Currently, most European countries employ a PC-based test for carrying out the theory test. However, few countries take advantage of the possibilities of moving images and other innovative test formats in the test. At the same time, all countries face the same problems regarding novice drivers and their higher accident risk, and the high costs of developing new and expensive applications for improving the theory test.

Hence, CIECA has taken steps to find out about the current theory test, and future plans, for the category B license in its different member countries. The focus is especially on finding out about innovative methods for delivering the test and assessing candidates.
