I think the UK driving test is much better than most American driving
tests.  And I like the German scheme even better:  To get a driving
license in Germany, you must pass not one, but three driving tests.  You
will take the third in the rain.  (In fact, if memory serves, you will
take the third test *at night* in the rain.)
