The Bali Traffic Police have just launched a new Audio Visual Integrated System (AVIS) as part of the overall process for the issuance of new driver licenses in Bali.

The system demonstrated to the press on January 13, 2010, is part of the Bali Police quick wins system intended to garner the approval and popular support of the people as police crack down on malfeasance and middlemen operating at the licensing centers.

While in the past applicants for driving licenses took a written test on traffic rules, the new AVIS system requires applicants to make a correct response on a test on traffic safety taken at a computer terminal.

Police told the Bali Post that those wishing a license must take the test directly and are not allowed to be accompanied while selecting their answers.

The system apparently also has a very human side. Those who take the test and do not pass will not be required to pay for the process. However, those who take the test and pass will then have to pay the Rp. 75,000 (US$7.50) for a new license.

The AVIS test is reportedly only required of applicants for a new driving license.

Meanwhile, DenPost has confirmed that the new AVIS technology will, as a practical consequence, mean that illiterate individuals will be banned from obtaining a driver's license.

14 separate computers terminals are in operation for the new tests, with each applicant given a maximum of 10 minutes to answer 30 question on traffic rules and regulations.

Problems Ahead

During the demonstration of the new system to the press, a number of ranking police officers were asked to demonstrate the test system. Many of the law enforcement officers appeared stymied by the questions, pondering over which answer to select. 9 incorrect answers out of a total 30 questions results in a "failing grade" and the requirement to come back on another day to take the test again.

While none of the police offers failed the test; at the same time none managed to score 100% correct answers.
