Missing the point: Man in Germany drives to driving test

BERLIN (AP) — A man in Germany has discovered the hard way that it’s best to get a driving license before trying to use it. Police in Bergheim, near Cologne, said Tuesday that the 37-year-old drove himself to his driving test, parking an Opel Zafira outside the test center in front of an astonished examiner. They said he told police officers who were called to the scene on Monday that he had only driven because he wanted to be sure of making it to the test on time. His test was immediately called off. The man now faces an investigation for driving without a license. Police also opened an investigation of the car’s owner.
