Successful launch of platform for digital settlement of theory tests for driving licenses

Last year, Trifork won the tender from the Danish Road Safety Agency for the development, implementation, and operation of a digital solution for conducting theory tests for driving licenses, has now been launched within the agreed schedule and budget.

“The theory test for the driving license is an event that makes a big difference for most Danes. Who doesn’t remember having to take the theory test? We have now seen the first students complete the test, and the reactions are very positive. With a digital platform for conducting theory tests, a more inclusive approach for the students is ensured. Among other things, they have the opportunity to revisit questions they were unsure about – this is where digitalization really comes into its own”, concludes Simon Brandt, Business Unit Leader at Trifork, Esbjerg.

The Danish Road Traffic Authority (Færdselsstyrelsen) is rolling out the new digital solution at 15 locations across the country during 2024. It replaces the analogue theory tests, where test answers are physically submitted on a response sheet and subsequently graded manually by the supervisor using physical correction sheets. Today, the Danish Road Traffic Authority, together with the Minister of Transport Thomas Danielsen, officially launches the platform.

Regarding the collaboration with Trifork, the Deputy Director of the Danish Road Safety Agency, Brian Paust Nielsen, state: “Digitalization is a natural part of our mindset. Here, the digital theory test is a fine example of how we can create a more flexible, efficient, and secure solution through digitalization. In the development of the digital theory test, we have been pleased with the collaboration with Trifork, who has delivered a robust system of high quality, which provides the students with an even better experience”.

The Danish Road Safety Agency conducts approximately 200,000 theory tests annually, and the digital solution makes the test administration significantly more efficient, safe, and user-friendly for both the students and the supervisors conducting the tests.
