Road Ace or Driving Disgrace? CarDelMar Launches an Alternative International Driving Test

Online PR News – 01-February-2011 – – Hamburg, 01.31.2011 Customs and manners abroad can often seem strange but some foreign driving rules are simply incomprehensible. Just to name a few, if you stop at a crosswalk in China, you risk getting fined and it’s against the law to slam a car door in Switzerland. According to the law in Memphis, Tennessee, women are only allowed to be behind the wheel if a man runs in front of the car and waves a red flag as a warning to other road users. With the help of the car rental broker, CarDelMar, vacationers can now test and improve their knowledge on international driving rules with a new exciting game.

The company has produced a clever quiz, available from their homepage or at http://www.cardelmar.com/service/international-drivingtest.jsp, on weird and wonderful driving rules from around the world. By answering eight questions, drivers can test their knowledge and assess how familiar they are with some of the strangest foreign driving laws.

Players can opt to take the test as one of several different characters in the game: as a cool guy, whose high horsepower and handbrake turns leave the female species doting on his every move, or a new yuppie, who feels most at home driving first class cars and relaxing at the golf club. Those who’d prefer to cruise around in a convertible as a Chihuahua-petting glamor girl can fulfill their dream too. There are a total of six entertaining characters available to choose from.

“Since CarDelMar started some five years ago, it has repeatedly hit the headlines with original promotions. This quiz helps us to make people more aware of the various driving rules around the world, but, first and foremost, it’s a great deal of fun!” explains Carsten Greiner, General Manager of CarDelMar. The fun doesn’t have to be short lived as different questions are drawn at random from a large stock each time you play.

Since 2005, CarDelMar has offered vacationers low-cost rental cars with all-inclusive packages. To make this possible, it collaborates with well-known international car rental suppliers such as Alamo, Avis, Europcar and local car rental providers. All rental car offers from CarDelMar are available to book directly on the website http://www.cardelmar.com.
