I know I'm a little late, but i finally passed my highway Exam.
I'm a lot more confident on the road, which is great.
I'll use this as something that i can use in other ventures.

P.S. Baby steps to success.

Don't forget to practice your night-driving capabilities if you get the chance.

Oh, oh, and where you're at, do they have risk courses?

Its mandatory to do a risk course for the driving license that I took in Sweden, loads of fun, like going 80 kmph onto solid ice fields and then try to stay in control while dodging cones.

To be honest...I feel everyone should be put into a driving/racing/handling/braking training course. Most people don't know jack shit about how to properly respond in certain driving situations and possibly avoid accidents. I think it's an excellent idea imho.

From what I've hear the german's testing is a hell of a lot harder then the stupid tests we have here. I mean seriously, here they're putting people on the road and teaching them common sense training. It's more of an idiot test then a driving test.

But congrats Kromat! So who you taking out on a special date now? ;)

The German driving license courses are utter crap, its privatized so pretty much even if they fail the tests they are passed and given a notice to practice more in their own time. Pay = Pass, unless you're utterly horrible.

Driving schools can be private, but the actual tests are great if the government branch runs it to make sure that its equally difficult for everyone to pass.

Being tested on ice would be quite informative, I'll have to see If I can find a course to practice on during the winter.

Waiting for one of our friends to get a custom built Mercedes out of town before
I can buy their intrepid, then I'll see about using it for my leisure time.

P.S. Thanks everyone, now to pass all these Real Estate courses, and I'll be set.
