I understand "blind", but wonder who color blind is such a big problem...🤔

Maybe when those pesky lights change from Green to Red?

Funny thing is DLT does not check if you blind or must wear glasses , they only check if you colourblind as if one would not know top is red and bottom is green.

 

but good on rider for ignoring his disability and living life to the full just as for passenger for understanding , sharing and helping instead of throwing a hissy fit .

Red at top, green at bottom, and still different colors to a colorblind.

I know someone (a Thai) who failed the motorbike test the first time she did it but passed on the second attempt, this was only about a month ago.

i think overall the traffic is ok today,

the theory test is adequate.

there is the random red light crossing & lotsa double parking,

but compared to how it was just a decade ago,

its almost heaven

no, they check both color, sharpness as in smaller and smaller text, and depth perception, as in needing 2 eyes

to get depth correct on the pin they scroll back and forth,

tho the control of the test isnt quite up to snuff,

ie all others in the room are allowed to give assistance during the tests.

i also nodded they have a reaction test,

i cant recall that in my home country

Traffic lights.

In NZ one can drive legally with one arm ( I travelled with a one armed driver many years ago ), and with an auto car one leg is fine.

Paraplegics with no leg function can drive, as can have all hand control.

I think one eye is OK too, so long as one's brain has had sufficient time to adapt, subject to testing.

Question; what are the mirrors on a bike, car, van, bus, truck for

1. squeezing zits

2. checking hair do/doing makeup

3. checking traffic around you

Answer; Duh! I don't know, I ask my Thai girlfriend she know everything, she have Motocyc licence (won it in a police raffle)

yeah.  to get a truck license you are told to always stay on the left side of the road, except to pass..... about 5,000 times.  done. 

 

to get a motorcycle license you watch a film that describes every possible truck driving category for operating a big rig in ASEAN...  for a truck driving license... and not a single thing about motorcycling in any of the tests and instructions.  done.

 

and a color chart test.  yeah, we all know already.
