Drug Testing ala Pinoy

Philippines driving license is easy to get, provided you pass the drug testing exam in flying colours. D was trying to get his driving license and we were directed to this center. First he thought he could pay some money to get everything done. Apparently that can’t be done.

Small centers like this are swarming around the Department of Transport. But isn’t it a weird regulation? Anybody can stop taking drugs for a week or so, take the test, get the license and go back to drugging. That just doesn’t make any sense.

    Nice. I love absurdities. So, when you’re hit by an other car, you can be sure that at the time of the test, a year ago or a month ago, he/she was free of drugs. Irrelevant, but good for him/her.

    So there’s only one question left: has ever been checked whether he/she was able to drive a car at all??

    Hmm…I guess driving there would be out of the question if I visit…

    I just got my driving license the other day. It is pretty easy to get one, you just have to deal with the waiting which can take all day but feels like years under the sun.
