Iran’s Pishkhan, a company affiliated with the state, has launched a new website to help learner-drivers prepare for the country’s mandatory driving theory test.

Pishkhan, which offers services related to e-governance, has developed in collaboration with Iran’s Traffic Police.

While many might underestimate this test, it requires at least 25 hours of studying time based on the experience of average learner-drivers with a first time pass.

Applicants need to pay 150,000 rials ($4) to register on the website and access a wide variety of services from simulated driving theory test to other educational materials.

The content includes videos and booklets covering a wide range of topics from first-aid to legal aspects of driving.

The website also offers a database with over 1,500 up-to-date questions for practice, including hazard perception questions.

The software is directly derived from the questions faced by test-takers during their actual driving theory test.

In addition to including all the learning materials needed for the test, the website can also be used as a database for parking lots, driving training centers, vehicle inspection centers and more. It also assists drivers in planning trips by providing traffic reports and weather forecasts.

The driving theory test is part of the current administration’s aim to push government services online and to lower the cost of each department due to lower income from traditional sources like oil and petrochemicals.
