Scooter license practice test

Has anybody taken it recently and come across really bizarre questions like this one the picture? Doesn't this sign contain all 3 pieces of information (direction, location, and distance)??????????????Image

Ha! I'm going to guess that "location" means "current location" so that's why it's not correct?

Here's a post I made a few years ago about some of the ridiculous English versions of the questions: http://www.forumosa.com/taiwan/viewtopic.php?f=75&t=106444&p=1462892#p1462892

Destination not location maybe? I would pick (2) direction and distance sign.

Luckily I never had to take a written test here because the Chinglish version is totally confusing

A lot of the questions in this test are badly translated (or just plain nonsense). A lot more are so easy you'd think the guys who wrote the tests were really nice people and wanted everyone to pass. There's not much you can do about it but learn by heart the correct answers to the silly questions - that's what the locals do too btw. It worked fine for me for both the scooter and the car driving tests.
