Utah.Gov Launches First Utah State Government Google Home App


The Department of Public Safety and the Department of Technology Services announced the introduction of the Utah driver license practice exam on Google (News - Alert) Home. The convenient, voice-activated practice exam allows new drivers to review Utah rules of the road with Google's popular voice-controlled speaker and digital assistant, Google Home.

"This even further expands the ways Utahns can access Utah driver license services," said Chris Caras, Driver License Division Director for the Department of Public Safety. "DPS is always looking for innovative ways to help educate drivers and keep the public safe."

The digital assistant, included with Google Home, helps new drivers study for the driver license exam by reviewing questions. Drivers will be asked several questions from the driver license exam. For example, Google Home might ask, "When approached by an emergency vehicle, the driver must immediately…" and the correct response would be, "Pull to the right and stop."

"Digital assistants present an incredible opportunity for simplifying interactions with state government," said Mike Hussey, State of Utah, Chief Information Officer. "We are always looking for new ways to use technology to benefit the residents of Utah."

Utahns can access the app from Google Home by asking, "Open Utah Driver License Practice Exam."
