I bombed at a lousy 61%. Phooey! But in my defense, I had Driver's Ed classes in Canada and have since been certified in Europe and the US. I can't possibly remember how many feet away from a fire truck I should keep back (it's probably slightly different everywhere anyway).
There, now those justifications have made me feel MUCH better ;)

@Mamaluv 61% I would poke fun at you except I probably shouldn't talk because (here's the confession)... I don't know how to drive.
I was born/raised in Toronto, lived here all my life- there was and is no reason to learn to drive, I never got my G1 even.

Mamaluv like I said I had to really think about a few of these and I've bin driving here for years. You just don't think about it after awhile and maybe we all should retest ourselves more often.
Alex I can see why you wouldn't want to drive in Toronto, its crazy there!!
|i did okay!! on Dec 16, 2011 @ 11:10 am|
thanks for the test!! i did pretty well. I live in Canada so the test was a bit different. I think that every 5 years we should have to retest for our drivers licenses. I know lots of people who have forgotten everything. (They are bad drivers)

Most of what I got wrong was how many feet away from this or that... and in each case I erred on the side of too cautious. I try to park far from stop signs and always keep well back from emergency vehicles. It would appear I'm too careful of a driver :)
The other thing I got wrong was the speed limit in a school zone, but in my area, they are all the same so that was the number I gave. It turned out to be wrong.
There was one other I got wrong but I'm drawing a blank right now. I agree that people should probably be retested on occasion, but when it comes down to it, most accidents happen because people are on their cell phones, putting on makeup, changing a CD, eating food, or otherwise distracted. (Of course, things like alcohol, medical issues, drowsiness, excessive speed, etc are other huge and obvious factors)
So while a driving instructor might be tempted to throw the book at me, they should know that, excepting a few incidents over 10 years ago, I am accident-free and ticket-free. Does it really matter if I park too far away from a stop sign? Exactly.
