Interest grows in Connecticut DMV mobile app

WETHERSFIELD, Conn. (AP) _ The Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles says a growing number of people are using the agency’s new mobile app to learn about real-time waits at DMV offices, get information about DMV services and conduct practice tests.

First introduced in mid-September, the agency said about 2,165 users downloaded the app in the first month. Over the last month, about 11,930 downloads were logged.

The app is available for iPhones, iPads and Adroid devices. Links to the app can be found at www.ct.gov/dmv/apps .

App users can find practice knowledge test questions and answers, as well as a parent quiz on teen driver safety. DMV is adding a Spanish translation of the practice test and quiz.

DMV advises those preparing for a learner’s permit test to download the app so they can practice.
