mae-ann, I don't feel bad of what you said. actually you don't need to correct me because i knew that driving school and traffic are different institution.
What I'm trying to say that, student's standing to his instructor will affect his chance of getting DL the earlier he wants it. Let say that, if the instructor will not advise that the student is qualified for the test, how can a traffic police conduct him a test if no recommendation from your side?
Now, the students opt to give "gift" to instructors just to get the favor of his instructor and provice him good teaching and driving technique and immediate recommendation for driving test.
I hope you get what i mean.
