Re: Real world testing

Already have that in the USA where a higher class license is required for Heavy Trucks or for Motorcycles over 150cc [different licensing classes].

Personally I'd like to see ~everybody~ have to start out with a Scooter License [under 150cc] so they can learn the rules of the road without having a 2000lb plus vehicle "under their control" and that when it gets out of control can become a lethal weapon.

Having to spend a few months as the most vulnerable vehicle on the road tends to focus a teenagers mind on the task at hand much more effectively than the modern crash-cage/entertainment cocoon on 4 wheels.
