Anyone who has moved to a new city knows the first thing you want to do is check it out. We've been doing that with the little village of Lupburg, and it's neighboring villages of Eggenthal, Parsburg and See. All of this has been on foot since the villages radiate from Lupburg in a 2 km radius. But to truly appreciate German countryside you need a car. And in order to drive a car, you have to have a German driver's license.
Lindsey and I spent the better part of the week studying the "Drivers Handbook and Examination Manual for Germany" including taking on line practice tests covering the rules of the road and road signs. Want to get a German license? Start here It's not easy! Sample question:
In the city where no priority signs are posted, the driver on the widest street has the right-of-way. (False)
In fact, the German "Right-of-Way" rule provided numerous problems for both Lindsey and me. So, armed with an orientation course, drivers handbook and numerous attempts with the practice tests, we entered the testing facility and proceeded to complete "TEST NUMBER 2". I finished a couple of minutes before Lindsey and we both passed!
