Q: Screwed on driving exam if you're color-blind in China?

I aim to pass the driving test but I heard from someone (who hasn't passed the test himself, which is why I distrust him), that there's a color-blind exam to get your license here.

 

Anyone know if this is true? I actually suffer from this (partially - certain colors I can't distinguish at all) and was super down when I heard this.

It's true.  Before you can even take the 100 question exam, you have to receive a certificate from a hospital which includes said color-blind test.  You could probably just take a Chinese friend with you, pretend not to speak any Chinese, and have them answer the questions to the doctor for you......assuming the doctor can't speak english.

 

My memory is they showed you a picture with patterns, and a number was embedded into the pattern using different colors.  The doctor would then ask you what number you saw.

I don't understand why a colour blind test would be needed, all lights are in sequence. It's not like they change at random.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
