The Maryland Learner’s Permit Test in the United States of America has expanded its language options, now including the Yoruba language among nine others, according to information obtained by Apples Bite Magazine.

As reported by CBS News, the tests and study materials were originally available in English, Spanish, French, Korean, traditional Chinese, and Vietnamese. However, beginning in September, Yoruba, along with Tagalog, Amharic, Arabic, Russian, Urdu, Hindi, Farsi, Portuguese, and American Sign Language, will be offered as new language options for aspiring drivers.

Chrissy Nizer, an administrator at the Motor Vehicle Agency in Maryland, USA, spoke on Tuesday, August 26, explaining the rationale behind these additions. She emphasized that the languages were chosen based on data from the US census, with the goal of enhancing accessibility for the driver’s knowledge test and study materials. This decision aims to better serve Maryland’s diverse linguistic population.
