Monthly Poll: Could you pass your Learner's test today?

Between writing for PumpTalk and being out on the world, I feel that I have a pretty good handle on the rules of the road. But then I came across a video on the Globe and Mail (sadly, no longer available without a subscription), demonstrating that many experienced drivers don't remember some of the basics.

I started to wonder…could *I* pass my learner's test today? 

The last time I took the learner's test was loooooong time ago, so naturally, I was curious about how I would fare taking it again without the frantic studying. I went online and found an online practice test. I enjoyed the feeling of being a sweaty-palmed 17 year old again as I worked my way through the questions.

Fortunately, the results were not too embarrassing:

I got one question wrong - I totally blanked out on what this sign means:

Yes, I remember what it means…now. It means the lane is only for two-way left turns.

Of course, not everyone has time to take the full practice test for "research" purposes (although I know you're all tempted to try). Whether or not you take the test, the big question is - do you think you could you pass your Learner's test today? Take our poll below!

Can't believe that all those people who said they'd pass actually took the online test. Thanks for the opportunity to brush up my knowledge!
