    >> That's because it's highly likely that the examiner quite would require you
    >> to do the S-shape parking into a super-tiny space...

    Which, by the way, is fairly realistic given some of the public parking spaces on the streets.

    they seemed pretty strict with me... i guess it depends on the person interviewing you. wouldn't give me the license without proof.

    I guess it also depends on whether the country whose licence you are using to get a HK licence is also the country of your birth/citizenship/etc.

    Just come here, check out the public transport, enjoy our nice air pollution, have a look at the petrol and parking prices, then think again.

    For the price of a covered carpark in our office building I could take the taxi for half of the month.
    the reason = three words:

    driving is fun
