Interpreter Request

The Indiana BMV allows an applicant for a driver’s license to use a foreign language interpreter to interpret the knowledge exam if the applicant speaks a language not already offered by the BMV.

Spoken language interpreters are not available if the knowledge exam is already offered in the requested language.

The BMV currently offers the written test in the following languages:

* English * Spanish * German * Burmese * Arabic * Chin * Simplified Chinese * Japanese * Korean * Punjabi * Russian * Vietnamese * French * Polish

How to Request an Interpreter for a Knowledge Exam

To request a foreign language interpreter, please make a request in one (1) of the ways listed below in yellow.

The BMV does not provide applicants with a foreign language interpreter; this service must be arranged by the applicant. Also, the interpreter must be willing to sign an affidavit after the test is completed stating the interpreter gave no unauthorized assistance to the applicant.

If you do not have a credential with the BMV, you must visit a branch to get a record created. Ensure you have the necessary documents outlined here before visiting a branch.
