89 here but I probably took a good 4 minutes or so. I don't know whether to give the test again since I'd hate to get my average down due to a lower score the second time around.

Edit: OMG. How the heck does a guy get almost everything right (97) in less than 2 minutes? That's less than 3 seconds/question. Damn!

The 97 score is very suspicious, few questions are really ambigious when you see them, there can be multiple right or wrong answers. 2 questions I found ambigious were :

1. Cell phone - switched off or silent , it depends from person to person, if you silence it and done use it , its good enough, but they can say you will get distracted by the vibration etc.

2. When will you be punished for driving without a license - "when a policeman controls you" , what does that even mean ? There is also a none of the above option to add to the confusion.

Does verification sms mean that one has cleared the first round? I received verification sms, I attempted the questions only twice scored 76 and then 79. Dont know I am selected or not.

When i got through Phase 1 last year, i had got a call from the organizers and also an email. The verification SMS is only to check the mobile numbers of participants in case the organizers want to contact.

I got through as well and have scheduled my test at the center in CR Park (Delhi) for the 7th. Does anyone know the exact location of the test center?

Edit: Just discovered a small issue though. The confirmation page asks for an additional proof of residence: latest electricity bill, voter ID, passport or ration card. I don't have 3 of the 4 and my passport doesn't have my Delhi address. Am I outta luck?

hey - I got through too (with a lousy score of 79)
One question before i schedule my test - do we get to use our own cars or is there a rule that contestants have to use cars supplied by Maruti?

Hi, I too got through, I was in the top 10

Booked 7th March Slot at CR Park, Autocar wanted me to come tomorrow , told them I goto college and that I cant.

@blackasta - this is the simulator + theory test, the finals will be the proper driving tests.

A friend of mine had participated in the contest previous year. He didn't get through the simulator test. There is one lady who crosses the road carelessly all the time. He hit that lady three time during the test.

I don't think so! I guess the proof of residence is just an extra requirement, in order to check the genuinity. As in my case, i don't hv a voter's id card, family does not hv a ration card(ration system out of order for middle & higher segment), electricity bill is in father's name only hv a passport that too is lying blank(no visas):P.

IMO, if u still want to take a proof, u can take ur passbook or get a notary approval of ur DOB & current address


Regarding the scores, i guess i m the person with the least score uptil now. I gave 5 attempts. My min score was 55 & max was 72. Avg as per my memory would be 63 odd. Looks like only the toppers have got the call from Autocar. Ahh! My dismal performance.

With the score of 79, scheduled 12PM slot on 5th March at C.R.Park, any fellow Team-Bhpian coming. I'll be there on my bruised and battered Omni...
