Florida drivers license Oral exam question

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


my husband who has a green card is taking an oral exam to get his drivers license in Florida. His interpreter flaked on us last minute and now we don’t have anyone to interpret for him. It takes a really long time to get an appointment and they already messed up his appointment once before. Technically I’m not supposed to translate for him but we don’t have the same last name so we dont see how they would find out. Does anyone have any advice on this situation or think we could get in big trouble if someone found out that i’m His wife? Not sure what to do. We can’t afford another interpreter. Thanks

DMV does walk-in's as well. Not sure if that's possible when you need an interpreter since i didn't need one. I know it's hard to get an appointment , that's why I did a walk in and i could do the exam the same day. Just be there early,before 8:00 am.


Personally I wouldn't take that risk to be his interpreter if its not allowed.

I'm not sure on FL's DMV's rules for interpreters, but I absolutely would not suggest claiming to be somebody you are not to a government official or on any paperwork (or to have credentials you do not). I wouldn't be surprised if there's a perjury clause involved. I also wouldn't suggest knowingly violating the rules/laws, as that can be considered fraud.

Oral exams may be given in English or Spanish with the exception of skills test or Hazmat exams. Interpreters may not be used during the administration of CDL oral exams or during any portions of the CDL skill exams. Be sure to study the handbook.
