Yes, this IS Ireland. Nobody knows how to drive. I've been knocked over
enough times to realise this. In this country, you fill in a form, receive
no training whatsoever, and be driving the same day. You also have to wait
at least 6 months to get a test date (if your lucky). And when you fail
it, you drive home ;--0

We use manual gearshifts, you guys use automagic ones I believe, so I'd
imagine the extra pedal would be confusing ;--0
