  2. Isn't it done on a computer and so marked by the computer? similar to a poster above I did mine 6 years ago for my bike test after driving for over a decade and it was multiple choice on the computer then.

  10. fixing driving standards will have a knock on effect on speeding and vehicle maintenance. however reducing speed limits and mot'ing cars wont make for better drivers

Their "tech" advised that it wasn't really worth the extra money and most people wouldn't notice the difference, I tried explaining that I'm getting at best 7meg and that a speed test shows that I would be getting >24meg on fibre but he really didn't seem to want to sell me on upgrading.

With electronic billing and e-mail I receive very little actual mail, what I do receive is all this crap (manx motoring/advertising/tails ect.).
