Yeeaaah, totally passed my driving test.
That doesn't mean all that much though; the system here is bizarre and pointless - yes, you do need to pass the test eventually, so it is good news, but ultimately your reward for passing the test is that bugger all changes, practically.
Confusingly, when this next phase is over and done with, there is no test before you can become a fully-fledged driver. The test is absolutely premature and doesn't confirm your ability to drive smoothly.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but at this point an American would just have a fully-fledged license by now, right? Pass the test, slam-blam-thank-you-ma'am, can drive now?
If so, I'd crack a joke about accident rates in the US but we should all know by now that excess regulation and testing before you can drive is not the key to accident prevention.
A culture of excessive drinking, douche-baggery and lack of experience is the cause of it, however, so it probably doesn't matter what tests or rules you follow.
Turns out a half-drunk dipshit in a Chrysler is a dipshit regardless of how many hours of "graduated piss-about licensing system" you put him through. :D
