How the test works

Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

Generally, driving in France is quite easy, but there are also some difficulties. For example, we don't recommend (to you) driving in Paris. Indeed, the capital can be very intimidating, especially the famous Arc de Triomphe's roundabout! When you go and explore more rural [parts of] France, you often notice that (the) streets in (the) town centres can be narrow. A lot of foreigners find that parking is also very hard in France. And in some smaller villages, most crossroads don't have signs but the car on your right always has priority [US: the right of way].

I'll be right with you...
