We live - but will we ever learn?

The old saying says, "live and learn".  Hopefully, as we move forward we also look back at those who have gone before us and try to learn from mistakes made along the way.

However, we seem to be destined to repeat the same mistakes of those who have traveled this road before us.

I paid a visit to our local DMV office to inquire about driver testing and the language barrier.  I was told that the DMV provides driver manuals only in English and Spanish.  But, the written exams are given in six languages.  More often than not, actual driving tests are given by English speaking DMV employees who claim they often resort to hand signals and gestures to give instructions during the test.

The United Kingdom has been in the same situation.  Read about the problems they have faced giving driver licenses to none English speaking drivers.
