My eldest daughter Cara obtained her Provisional Driving Licence! In Zim, you are allowed to start driving at 16 - and you have to pass a written test first, then you may drive while accompanied by a licenced driver until such time as you pass the 'road test'.
This was Cara's first attempt at her 'Provs' and she managed to get more than the 88% required for a pass - despite the inevitable 'tricky' questions. Maybe I'm biased, but I think they deliberately try and put in questions which will mean that it is impossible to get 100% on the test. We obtained a booklet with 365 questions that may be asked in the test - and my favourite of them is this - you try and answer and I will provide the correct choice after the celebratory photo below.......
Q You look in your mirror and see an aeroplane. You should.
a) Do nothing
b) Adjust your mirror
c) Move off the road as quickly as possible
d) Reduce speed
Answer to follow - but here is one very happy little chicken!
Now then - the answer to the Driving Test question about the aeroplane. (And remember I have a booklet with the Official answers!)
The correct answer is.......
b) Adjust you mirror!
Yeah, right! So, you're driving along, and a Boeing 747 makes an emergency landing on the road behind you - and all you do is adjust your mirror? No wonder the kids in this country all behave like Chuck Norris and Rambo, combined, when faced with problems!
We're teaching them the wrong stuff!!!!??!
Or...........am I just a wussy?
