Three expats learning to drive realize that the great challenge is not the strange traffic rules in their new countries, but rather their ingrained behavioral patterns. They all need a driving license somewhat urgently. While taking lessons and trying to pass their tests, they realize how their cultures are entirely in their way. Their confusion over driving on the right or left side of the road, waving hand-signals or clicking are just the beginning of their 'comedy of errors'.
