The easiest driving test in the world

In Singapore, we all know how to go about getting our driving license. Go to a driving school, get your BTT done, get the PDL, do your FTT and after a certain number of lessons, do the final test. And within that final test, we have the circuit and bla bla bla. All that sounds good and sophisticated with so many different hurdles to cross before getting the actual license. With all that you'd actually think that Singaporean drivers are very good. Well not so.. But anyhow, this is how a driving test in India looks like. And don't be alarmed, this is the actual test.

I was simply shocked by the simplicity of that test. If you weren't, maybe you actually did this test in India yourself. In one of the world's most congested places, a test like that rewards you with the freedom and privilege of driving a car through the streets of Delhi or Bombay. That is incredible! Just some figures that really boggle the mind: India's percentage of the global car population stands at 1% (maybe more now) [Daily Telegraph Sep 06] and the rate of death and injury caused by accidents on India's roads? 1 person dies every 6 minutes; 10 are injured in the same time frame [BBC; Sep 2005]

The man in the video also talks about buying a license without even doing the test, but honestly, looking at the way the test was conducted, I think whether your license was bought or not, it doesn't really make a difference...
