The UK's driving test is definitely not the most difficult, and you also don't instantly fail your manouvers if you make a mistake just as long as you take appropriate correcting action. The key thing is if you think are about to do something stupid, such as hit the kerb, or reverse round a corner on the wrong side of the road, stop, think and correct. This doesn't mean back out and start again, only do that if it is completely necessary. And remember to make proper observations because that is one thing you will fail instantly on if you fail to do.
Apparently the driving test in Egypt was to drive 100m straight ahead through two cones, then reverse back through them... I think they might have changed it now. A guy at my uni is from kenya, and his test lasted 10 minutes and consisted of driving down a deserted road.

"and you also don't instantly fail your manouvers if you make a mistake just as long as you take appropriate correcting action."
How do you appropriately correct a turn in the road when you've touched the curb? of course you can instantly fail on manouvers, and yes, it's about observation, but it's also very easy to miss-judge your observations when driving.
And yes, the test in the UK is very hard, IMO, and sometimes very unfair, too.
Wohoo, looks like i'm the average on TDC, 20. Guess that might have something to do with the release date of the klick products and at what age people generally are open to that kind of software.
I don't feel younger by drinking (I stop drinking as soon as I feel that it is affecting me anyway) and I started klicking when I was 10 or something).
The swedish driver test is somewhat like the UK I think.
