Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles Awarded for Interactive Driver Service

BATON ROUGE, La.--()--Louisiana’s Amazon Alexa practice driving test service provided by Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV) was recently recognized by StateScoop and given the State IT Innovation of the Year award which highlights the best and brightest in the state IT community.

The Alexa skill allows citizens to take practice driving tests. The service can be used by individuals applying for a driver’s license or anyone looking to challenge their memory of Louisiana’s driving rules. Available for download, the Amazon Alexa skill ‘Louisiana Driving Test’ can be used on any Alexa or Echo device. Once prompted, Alexa will provide instructions to answer 10 multiple choice questions and keep score as randomly selected questions from an extensive question bank are read aloud.

“We wanted folks to enjoy the process of obtaining their driver’s license,” said Commissioner Karen St. Germain. “It’s an honor to be recognized and we are excited to be able to provide Louisiana drivers this cutting-edge service.”

The award-winning service is one of many applications developed in a partnership between Louisiana Interactive and the Office of Motor Vehicles. Additional services provided by the OMV can be found on Expresslane.org.
