LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles officials have advice for immigrants seeking a driver authorization card: study.
They estimate 75 percent of applicants have failed the written test needed for the card under a new law that made the state the 11th nationally to offer driving privileges to people in the country illegally. The cards became available Thursday.
Applicants must correctly answer 80 percent of 50 questions to pass the test. They also are required to pass a driving exam to receive cards. The failure rate on the driving test was not immediately available.

Scary as hell aint it; driving on the road with people who cant read the signs?
They drive really slow- jam traffic- pack as many people into a vehicle as they can- and guess what-
The police dont do a damn thing about it.
its not right at all if you ask me.
But to many- thats just racist thinking right? Not like I havent heard that response 1 million times.
Dont disprove my theory- just call me names; regardless of the make-up of my family and friends.

This city has a lot of hit n runs when it comes to illegals. but they dont run with their vehicles- they run away from their vehicles ON FOOT most of the times- because they arent legit in the first place.
This makes me wonder.
If you fail a written drivers test. How will you do on the road test.
I would like information regarding the language options of these tests. I can understand if people have difficult reading English if they are from a foreign country. However if these tests are offered multilingual and they are still failing, does that raise alarms to anyone about illegal immigrants illegally driving uninsured in cars.
The Nevada knowledge test for a Class C, non-commercial license consists of 50 multiple-choice questions. 80 percent or better is a passing score.
Knowledge tests are available on touch-screen computers in English and Spanish. The system also offers audio-based tests.
