Maryland MVA Mobile Practice Driving Test Apps Reach Half a Million Downloads

Posted: 12/22/2014

​The highly popular Maryland Practice Driving Test mobile apps provided by the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) have reached a monumental milestone of half a million downloads from the iOS and Android App Stores.  Launched just over three years ago, the Maryland Practice Driving Test is a free and convenient tool to prepare future drivers for the knowledge test required to obtain a Maryland driver’s license. The MVA also launched a Spanish-language version of the mobile app earlier this year to help prepare all applicants applying for a driver’s license in Maryland. 
 
“The Maryland Practice Driving Test mobile app is a great resource to use when preparing to take the driver’s knowledge test,” said Milt Chaffee, MVA Administrator.  “With a focus on behaviors that can affect safe operation of a motor vehicle, it challenges users to test their knowledge of the rules of the road.”
 
The mobile app has received glowing reviews with five stars in the App Stores.  Drivers who have downloaded the mobile app said they highly recommend it. Users shared they used it to study for the test, practiced until they received 100 percent before taking the actual test, and as a result passed it the first time around.
 
The Maryland Practice Driving Test app generates a random series of 25 questions and allows users to repeat the test as often as they like. The app also integrates with social media channels and allows users to email their scores to their parents and friends or post on Facebook and Twitter.

The Maryland Practice Driving Test mobile apps are available for free download on the iTunes and Google Play app stores and can also be accessed through the state’s official website, www.Maryland.gov or MVA’s website, http://www.mva.maryland.gov/mobile/
 
The Maryland Practice Driving Test mobile apps were developed at no cost for the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration by NIC Inc., through the self-funded eGovernment services contract with the State Department of Information Technology (DoIT).
