I didn't want to drag the Hit & Run thread off track, but it got me thinking... The UK driving test seems to have been massively overthought, with every aspect from push-pull steering to six point mirror checks taken to its maximum logical conclusion. Training for the test takes a long time (22 hours of private driving and 45 hours of paid practice according to the government), and at Â£25 an hour (plus the cost of licenses, tests, learner insurance) costs a not-so-small fortune. Which leads me onto my points... Firstly, that the driving test is balls and should focus on attitude and awareness, rather than bone drills which are binned as soon as you pass - and secondly that we should teach driving in schools, like a lot of other countries do... Thoughts?
