The DMV driving test should be a computer driving sim with a fake car cockpit. It would be pretty cheap and could be fully automated. Instead of the stupid paper test where you do some driving rules, you play the driving sim. You have to execute some basic moves, parallel park, etc, then maybe also throw in some surprise accident-avoidance tests to check reaction time. (the old fashioned behind the wheel test is very rare now in the US because it's very expensive for the government; I never took one myself, and of course you don't take them when you renew, which is pretty critical when you're 80+ years old).
