With the rise in electric vehicles, changes will be made to driving tests in Türkiye, reducing the number of questions related to the engine section.

Serdar Tepeoz, President of the Central Anatolian Driving Schools and Educators Federation, stated that with Türkiye’s electric vehicle, Togg starting to hit the roads, new regulations concerning electric vehicles will be introduced.

“In the current exam, we ask candidates about the vehicle’s engine section, but with the new regulation, the way will be opened for exams with electric vehicles. Electric vehicles like the local Togg do not have an engine section. Therefore, candidates were unable to take the exam, but we have opened the way for this. We will reduce the questions asked after opening the hood and keep up with technology,” said Tepeoz.

Tepeoz also mentioned that under the new regulation, if there are no suitable vehicles for disabled candidates at the driving school they attend, they will be able to take the exam with their own vehicle.

He noted that there will also be a provision for candidates who fail the driving test five times despite passing the written exam.
