Jeremy Clarkson shows us just how easy India's driving test really is
You won't believe how simple it is...
Passing your driving test here in the UK is quite an impressive achievement for many people, whether you're 17 or 50. Many people fail their first attempt due to a few silly errors but when you eventually get it, it is a great sense of achievement.
But it appears to be slightly different in India, as Clarkson will show you now. In this old Top Gear clip, you see the driving test of a young Indian man. His test is like all other driving tests in India. He gets in the car, drives forward a bit, turns a bit right, then a bit left then comes to a stop some 50 yards later.
And that is it, he has passed his test to be a legal road user. You will also notice that this was done on an empty road with no obstacles in the way. This may baffle you, but this is how it's done over there. Interesting isn't it.
