The Street View Driving Test

Romanian driving school ACR has devised an ingenious way for learner drivers to revise for their driving test theory exam using Google Maps Street View. Street View Test is a practice test for the theory exam which uses Street View images to contextualize each question in the practice test.

During the practice test learner drivers are asked a series of questions which they might be asked in the real theory exam. For each question the learner driver is presented with a Street View image of a situation that they might experience on the road. Overlaid on the Street View scene is a question with four possible answers.

For example, the Street View image might show a number of cars waiting at an intersection. The learner driver might then be asked which of the cars in the Street View image has priority and must choose the correct answer from the four answers provided.
