Last year, a man in China failed his test after hopping into the car and then failing to understand how to fasten a seat-belt. Yup, the poor unfortunate chap was filmed on a dashcam while taking his 'Subject 2' test after passing his theory exam.
The notorious test is dreaded by learners in China, as it sees wannabe motorists sent out to the roads alone, while a camera watches over their every move.
