The DGT opens a new war and prohibits black masks: these are the reasons and actions

The General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) of Badajoz it has opened a war that could soon be national. Has decided ban face masks black in all the exams to get the driver’s license. The motives? He believes that students can use them to carry earpieces or electronic devices that they can use to copy on tests. But, yes, for now, will not fine anyone.

The offensive that started in Badajoz, It is because the Provincial Headquarters of the General direction of traffic has detected irregular behaviors in students. Among them, some have hidden cameras or audio devices.

The objective of the prohibition is that the examiners can better identify these electronic devices that “allow to connect with the outside to face the answers”, they explain about the controversial decision.


But this is the least of it. The General Directorate of Traffic simply warn students that with a black mask they cannot take the driving test. But, if, in any of the cases, these students decided to cheat, they would be fined with 500 euro penalty and the obligation not to appear in the next six months.

For the moment, however, the measure will only be carried out in Badajoz. In the rest of Spain, the rule continues to be the one established by the national DGT on its website: it is mandatory “to wear a surgical mask or FFP2 without an exhalation valve, must cover in any case nose and mouth “.
