    I think couch might be used depending on where you live but I would always use sofa instead.

    Adrian won a QSQ! Thanks to Minnabird for the beautiful banner. Click on it to read Stolen Magic - the story of the second wizarding war through a very different character's eyes.

    Where i live, we would probably use Couch, Sofa or Setee, the last 2 more predominantly.

    Couch can be used.

    I think we're more likely to say sofa. For some reason my mum always said 'settee' I think she thought it was posher than couch. The social distinction goes over my head though.

    I always thought that 'sofa' is more posh than 'settee'.

    Is it true that in the UK you can't get your licence until you are 17?

    And what is a common theory question, please and thank you!

    Yep and it is very difficult to get insurance before you 21 (particulary if you're a boy).

    Link to goverement website on theory tests.

    Hope I helped.

    ETA: They don't seem to have much on the type of questions, sorry.

    ETA,A: Here's a link with a free mock test, scroll down.

    Is the theory test written or computerized? The first link worked, I had to register at the site to take a mock test. You have some odd questions! Thanks!

    Edit: What is a bay? As in "You see and meter zone sign, during the times list on the sign you should:A. park in a bay and pay."

    Edit, again: Hey I got 32 out of 47, I failed but I did a good job of it!
