My driving test (in a very small town in NZ in the late 80's) was a joke. Back then "Ministry of Transport" Officers used to deal with everything traffic related (they later merged with NZ Police in the early 90's). The local cop was notoriously sexist. Women used to have to drive all over town, do hill starts, 3-points turns, the works. My test involved 4 left turns (including 1 STOP sign and 1 GIVE WAY) and then pulling back into the same parking space I'd pulled out of about 3 mins earlier - presumably easy because I was a bloke. I didn't complain.
