The New Zealand Transport Agency in Wellington wants to scrap its paper driver licensing tests and move to a digital format. According to expression of interest (EOI) documents released last week, the paper system has a number of problems including manual errors, delayed data entry and lost test papers.
The proposed digital solution would allow schedule information to be downloaded from the agency’s website and allow the uploading of test information, along with backup for the digital information should it need to be replaced.
This EOI has been issued as the agency wishes to source a number of Windows-compatible electronic devices.
The deadline for replies is Thursday, December 11. More details are available on the Government Electronic Tenders website under ICCNZ reference 24349.
