    How are they going to go through the licensing system if they donít have a basic grasp of English ? I donít think there are any instructors that do, as it would be such a niche market
    Rest in Peace

    Wow.

    That's a shame.

    Genuinely.

    I'm shocked.

    Good luck dealing with the assessors.

    Perhaps remind him that he lives in Australia. If he canít understand the instructor - he wonít understand any tester

    Maybe youíre taking it the wrong way. For someone who learned English as a second language somewhere else they can struggle with a different accent. Iím Canadian and if I call to order takeaway I have to Aussie up my accent to have any hope of getting what I ordered. The struggle is real. Imagine you learn French in Quebec then have to take a driving test in French in Senegal. It would be handy if you could have someone run through the practice test in English so you know what to expect no?

    nope - China is an emerging economy still, many of the people on the roads there are the first generation of their family to actually drive let alone have access to a sealed road or car. This partly is to blame for their poor driving.

    Sure it's utter chaos but somehow it works , spent a couple of weeks traveling around china this year and no way would I drive there , still more predictable than the local road going methheads all over Perth ......

    Well yeah it is fucking Australia, and we by majority speak English...

    I would expect, and I'm sure you are smart enough too, that if we went to China and tried to get a drivers license we would need to be able to speak Chinese...
