You may have hit the nail on the head.

My son's "driver education" course was instructed by someone who was just doing it as a job. The road test to receive his license consisted of a 5 minute stint behind the wheel and as long as he didn't do too many things wrong, he was awarded the right to drive by the state.

This did not sit well with me and even though he had obtained his driver's license, until he was able to demonstrate the ability to drive properly, he was not given the keys to the car.
