• Short Summary

    Women in Vienna take driving tests in the grounds of the former Imperial Palace.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Super drivers!"

    Vienna, Austria.

    In the grounds of the former Imperial Palace we see various shots of women taking driving tests. Women in cars and on motorcycles have to drive through markers on the ground and between poles.

    A game "introduced to both liven the proceedings and demonstrate smooth acceleration and braking" involves picking up matches from a table and driving to the winning post as fast as possible. A woman on a motorbike with a girlfriend in the sidecar is seen doing this. Another game involves stopping the vehicle to pick up an apple in a bucket of water.
