Stuck in a traffic jam? Try this quiz ...

Well, would you be able to pass a written driving test? If, after years of driving experience, you were suddenly sat down to take an exam paper, how would you do? Pretty well, you think? Here's your chance to find out! Just sit down and take this specially designed driving test paper (specially designed for people who think they know it all).

Note: if you are taking this test while driving along, with the paper on the seat between your knees and a pencil in your teeth, glancing down between overtaking cars, you are disqualified before you start.

1. When you see the slogan "Don't Drink and Drive", do you take this to mean:

a) Wait;

b) Hoot angrily;

a) Lock the doors and windows;

b) Lock the doors and windows and dial 999 on your mobile phone;

c) Laugh and point at your passenger and then at the horn and then shrug, as if to say, "My friend here leant over and hooted at you - nothing I could do about it!";

d) Try and run him over?

4. Which of the following are current legal restrictions on a Christmas tree being carried home on the roof of your car?

b) The one which doesn't stop;

c) The one going fastest;

d) The one with the blue light on top;

e) Yours;

f) The one driven by the man with road rage?

6. If you are stuck in a traffic jam on a motorway, which doesn't move for over an hour, and you get so fed up that you get out and start walking about, and you get talking to a bloke in a van who likes the look of your car, and he makes you an offer for it, and you are so mad you decide to sell it there and then, and he hands over the cash and you start walking home, and just then the jam starts moving again, are you still responsible for getting the car out of there? Describe briefly the reasons for the answer you gave.

7. A small animal or bird flies or runs in front of your car. You think you may have hit it, though you hope not. What would you do?

a) Do a U-turn and go to the animal's assistance;

c) Keep to starboard;

d) Give way to older vehicles;

e) Hoist the appropriate flag.

9. Under what circumstances can a vehicle be licensed for the performing of the marriage service inside?

a) If it is a chauffeur-driven limousine used for church purposes and the car is held up on the way to the service;

b) If it is floating on flood water and you are the captain;

c) If it is a circus caravan.

10. If you drive out of a motorway service area filling station and realise just as you re-emerge on to the motorway that you forgot to pay for the petrol, what should you do?

a) Reverse back up to the filling station;

b) Drive like hell;

c) Hoist a big sign as soon as the police appear behind you saying: "ALL RIGHT, COPPER, I KNOW I FORGOT TO PAY SO SHALL I PULL OVER TO THE HARD SHOULDER AND GIVE YOU A CHEQUE, OR WHAT?"

Good luck!
