Waiting in line today at the Van Nuys DMV, I witnessed 4 people get a failing grade. To pass, new drivers can miss 6 or less. For renewals, it’s 3 or less.
From an article in last November’s L.A. Times:
When it’s time to take the California driver’s test for a license renewal, one-third of the drivers flunk the exam given in English. Among aspiring drivers who have never taken the exam before, 50% fail.
People taking the test in Spanish for renewal do even worse, with 80% flunking.
Yes, some of those wacky DMV questions can be tricky. I can understand missing a few. But, one guy missed 31 questions. 31 out of a possible 36.
Have a nice day.
