At age 15 years, 6 months, a teen can apply for a driving permit in Arizona,
They first must pass a written test. Okay. Easy right? I mean, the State is surely concerned with getting these young drivers n the right foot, and so, there must be a plethora of free study materials available. Right?
Wrong. Waaaaaay wrong.
There are study materials. A good number actually. Free? Not hardly.
Recently, a friend's son had to purchase the online study guide, so he had SOMETHING to study and learn from before his test. He bought 100 practice questions. He knew them cold. He went and took the 30 question test, and failed.
Why? Nary one of the 100 practice questions were on the test. And, a couple that were, had different answers than on the practice questions. Nice.
Certainly the State has a very strong interest in starting these kids out on the right path. Why not make all of the study guides available for free? What if a family cannot afford to pay? Send their teen to test, he/she gets lucky and passes, and bang!! Another inexperienced and uneducated driver on the Arizona roads! Just what we need! As a car accident lawyer in phoenix, the problem continues to rise, there needs to be more ways to educate new and old drivers alike.
Why is this so difficult, when it should be easy. Does this mark ANY sense? Really?
