However, some users found the purported exam’s requirements impractical when it comes to everyday driving.

“That’s nice. Road test on actual roads with actual cars is a much better test to see if a driver is prepared to drive,” another user argued.
As of this writing, the viral video has accumulated over 11 million views and 180,000 likes.
