    They just have to study to pass.

    Keep in mind, at least for the Mexicans, they buy their drivers licenses for the most part so they have never taken a drivers test in their lives.

    The driving part will be fun for the instructor. I hope his insurance is paid up.
    Do you know that? It's not for the same document, so they could get away with making it different.

    (Of course that doesnt mean the ACLU wouldnt challenge it )

    Driving is a privilege. I have no issues with measures to make it safer.
    We've been doing it for years. Why stop now?

    Some people apparently have a hard time getting an ID so we shouldn't require one to vote. Some people have a hard time finding a job so we should pay unemployment benefits indefinitely. Some people don't have health insurance so we should make everyone else pay for a policy for them. Some kids can't pass a test in school so we should change the standards to "at least they tried". Why should driving be any different?

    These so called "illegal aliens" probably had no idea that that long walk through the desert in the dead of night would put them in this country illegally and then when they had kids they probably had no idea that those kids would also be here illegally but that's not their fault, it's everyone else's fault for having these stupid standards in the first place.

    If your kid is acting up in school it's not because they're undisciplined, it's because they're mentally challenged. If you get knocked up out of wedlock it's not your fault, it's the fault of the bastards that refused to give you free birth control. If you can't pay your bills that's not your fault, it's the evil corporations who insist on getting paid for their goods and services. If you spent 15 years in college and have a PhD in ancient Greek art but now nobody wants to hire you to run their widget factory that's not your fault, it's the fault of the scumbags that offshored all the good jobs.

    See where I'm going here?

    Why should we bother having any damned standards at all if we just going to blame failure on someone else and subsidize that failed life?

    Exactly....and I'm against dumbing down the testing for driving. For anyone.

    If they could have made it harder for these people, they would have made it harder for everybody.

    Making anew test would have cost a lot of money and I doubt the government would have spent that.

    I don't think it matters how easy it is, if you don't learn the material, you fail.

    Oh I can definitely see (the potential for) 2 separate agendas here.

    What motive would they have to make them harder for citizens?

    I think you missed my point.
