Motivation

I found EXTREMELY ridiculous the amount of questions you have to do to drive a jet ski, tomorrow I'm going to a trip and of course a jet ski is included and I was told right now that I need a license for it, so I'm doing the test and each slide is 24sec just to click next, each chapter is about 73 pages... I simply find this stupid and who ever helped to made it possible. So, I'm posting the Q/A to whoever has to go through this crap again and of course for me in the future...
