Chinese? German? Spanish? Indiana BMV Introducing Driving Tests In 11 Languages
By Mike Perleberg
(Indianapolis, Ind.) – If you can read this it may not pertain to you, but the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles is now offering drivers tests in 11 new languages.
The BMV announced Wednesday the decision was made at the urging of businesses, universities and advocacy groups.
“Consistent with the vision of Governor Pence and Lieutenant Governor Ellspermann to bring international jobs to Indiana, and their trade missions around the world, Indiana has become an attractive option for foreign business,” said BMV Commissioners Don Snemis.
In addition to English, the languages that will be offered include Arabic, Burmese, Chin, German, Japanese, Korean, Punjabi, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Spanish and Vietnamese. The languages were chosen based on an Indiana Youth Institute study of primary languages spoken in the state’s households.
“Additionally, Indiana has one of the largest foreign student populations in the country thanks to our outstanding institutions of higher learning. As a result, Indiana is a proud partner in the global business community. We welcome business leaders and students from all nations, and we hope that our efforts will play a small part in welcoming more investment in Indiana,” Snemis said.
Those new translated tests should be available at most BMV branches with automated testing terminals by mid-August.
I am from Hungary. I speek good german and a little english and of corse my mother tongue.
Dear Sharkie How many languages do you speek?
I live here one month ago and have to stay for 10 months. My husbend is consultant by a big internationaly company. He was invited here. I have a driver license in Europe, but here is not valid. Why??? I don't know.
So I have learn in one months the english perfect? Is it possible? No. I will test german.
I am very glad of this option.
Fortunately, your leaders are smarter.
Well you are an idiot, aren't you? Its about them being here illegally and they wine and dine on tax payer money. You should have been Obama's running mate!!
OK special ed. Read my original comment. I was saying this is america. We speak English here!! Been that way for years now and I expect it to be that way for quite some time. So now you tell me, why shouldn't they learn the language?
Im not asking them to become citizens. I'm not even asking them to leave. I am asking that if you do come here, LEARN THE LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The last time I checked, Indiana was in America. And we speak English!!!!! Learn the language or get out!!
So we're all haters because we don't agree with YOU? LMAO
Illegals and foreigners are taking over. I'm glad I won't be around to see the fall of our Roman Empire, but sad that my kids and their kids will have to put up with the nonsense that America is becoming.
You can blame this on the democratics. If they didn't pander to minorities and illegals, they would never get elected.
Unfortunately, most Americans read something like this and think "no big deal." The reality is that this is the beginning of the end of America. In 50 years this place will be unrecognizable.
Europeans used to come here not only to make a better life for themselves, but also because they wanted to become American. Millions of people from all corners of Europe came together and agreed on a language and a culture. Today's immigrants don't want to assimilate, they want to create little ethnic enclaves where they speak their native tongue and abide by the norms of their home countries. Quite often they're hostile towards outsiders. These people are not American, they're hyphenated "Americans." Our schools don't teach us that 1965 was the year our borders were opened to non-whites. Immigration laws were discriminatory because the people who wrote them were intelligent enough to know that a racially and culturally cohesive country is a happy country. This is a controversial opinion nowadays because we've been brainwashed into believing that our country was always meant to be what it is today and that all races and cultures are on equal footing. This is obviously not the case. To say that the people who gave us rocketry and spaceflight are equal to hut-dwelling, cannibal witch doctors in the Congo is an insult.
This isn't happening in America only. The same situation is occurring in the UK and many countries in Europe. The English are now a minority in London and are on track to becoming minorities in several other major cities. The French will be a minority in Paris within this decade, if they're not already. Norway and Sweden; same deal. One common theme we see in formerly white majority cities that have experienced a massive influx of third worlders is a sharp increase in crime. These people leave their countries because they are are poor, dirty and crime-ridden. And what do they do when they get to our countries? They want to change it to be more like the places they come from. The most absurd aspect of all of this is that we tolerate and accept it! No one wants to be called the big, bad r-word!
By definition this is genocide. The host culture being removed and replaced with a foreign one. Meanwhile, the mainstream media tells a different story. They would have you believe that minorities are all good-hearted, peaceful people and it's racist white people who are the problem. If that's the case, then why are minorities responsible for the vast majority of crime? Nearly all rapes and aggravated shootings are committed by young, black males. Dearborn County is overwhelmingly white and overwhelmingly gun-friendly. How many shootings, let alone shooting deaths, occur here? Compare that to individual neighborhoods in Chicago.
White people need to wake up. Our countries are being given away to people who want nothing to do with us and want everything to do with our welfare and kind nature. Were Americans ever asked if we wanted this? Of course not. Legislation is passed behind closed doors and without the peoples' consent. Had we been asked, this sure as hell wouldn't be happening today.
@Evil White Man ...GOOD STORY...THANK YOU
Oh goody! Come to America, don't learn the language, and government bends over and accomodates your needs. Give me a break. Back to segregation.
I would have agreed with you but you mentioned segregation. This nation does not need that. What it needs is tighter border protection.
Ed, you take in all these illegals and you alone support them. You teach them how to read and write in ENGLISH. Find them LEGAL jobs.I'm not saying they won't work, I'm saying they are taking american jobs away from american people that are here LEGALLY! And why do I have to press 1 for english? This is america! Learn the language or don't come here! If you don't like it, you move to mexico so you can press 2 for English!!!!!!!
GOOD.... GLAD TO HEAR THEY ARE KEEPING ENGLISH..I THOUGHT YOU HAD TO SPEAK ENGLISH TO GET A LICENSE!
