I missed 9 out of 25 when you are only allowed to miss 5. But I think I know which ones I got wrong. A few I didn't understand at all. No, really, the vocabulary was something I'd never heard before. I had no idea what the man was saying. So obviously I wasn't likely to get those. But I'm slightly frustrated because some of the questions were unduly complicated, unlike the practice tests where the situations depicted were much more straight forward. I've got to get back the mindset of the Danish equivalent of the US Department of Motor Vehicles where you don't think like a driver, but like an anally-retentive OCD-suffering five year old.
"I would have put on underwear under my pants, but you didn't tell me to put them on TODAY. Then you didn't tell me not to pee BEFORE I put on my pants. Therefore, it is not my fault that I peed in the car on the way to school and then mooned the principle. Really, mother, it is ALL YOUR FAULT."
It's nice to know that driver's tests are universally more complicated then they need to be and do not mean that the people who pass are good drivers, just good at thinking like that nutty 5-year old.
There was an interesting mix of people taking the exam. Most of us were fairly young. ("Most of us?" Jesus woman, you are 32, not old, but a good deal older than the five 18 year olds that were there.) There was an older guy there. And by "older" I mean in his 50s. I don't know if he'd lost his license or had just decided you were never to old to learn to drive, but it was nice to not be the oldest person there. I also didn't do the worst. That was left to a woman who missed 20. Twenty!
There were several of us who spoke Danish as a second language, but I think I was the only one who had only recently learned Danish.
I'll find out tonight what I need to do now - how much will it cost to take the test again and when I can take it again and what I should do to study more. I can pay to take all the tests on the website, but not a single picture or question there appeared in my test, which seemed to date from the 70's. They were slides for crying out loud! I really wish I could have seen the one's I missed and gotten the correct answers. It would have made it far more easy to study. As it is, I have to guess.
And until I pass, I'm forbidden from driving AT ALL in Denmark. They took my American license away.
The joke's on them, though. It expires relatively soon, so I'll be getting another one. Bwahahahah!
