Hip ! hip ! horay !!! - Got my Chinese Driving Licence

I passed my Chinese driving licence test.
Now before you all scoff, and suggest that it would be an easy test, let me tell you different.

There are 1320 questions.
At the exam center, you are selected 100 random questions by the computer.
They are in an exam hall of about 50 metes square, with I guess 100 test desk stations.

90 correct is the passmark.

Any way, first time I went on Friday, I scored just 86 correct.

This Monday morning I returned and scored 93 correct.

Needless to say, we were both mightily relieved.

It really is the most difficult test I have ever done.

When I remember the CT driving test at Green Point, many years ago, and the UK driving test.
This Chinese driving test is way, way, way, above that.

Really?

I can only assume that none of the many tens of thousands of Chinese citizens that emigrate to Canada have ever passed this test, then.

May be that is one of the reasons why they left ... and they are everywhere

Obviously there needs to be a link up of 'failed licence' international data base to filter these out of the traffic? More burrocracy
