Driving licences around the world
Here’s what drivers around the world drive with…
In Britain we have it easy. You learn with a driving instructor, or a parent, take a couple of tests and… voilà! You’re a driver.
But did you know that in Finland it takes at least two years of training to obtain a full licence? Learners have to take night-driving courses, learn how to control the car in skids, and know how to get the car running if it breaks down.
All UK drivers know learning to drive feels like riding the longest rollercoaster of emotions.
But what do drivers from around the world have to contend with?
Hawaii: You know you’re driving in paradise when your driver’s licence has a rainbow on it.
Japan: Some driving licences are very bland…
