While I don't drive, I can indirectly comment from observation. While I was born in Berlin, I only lived in Germany until I was 3, and didn't go back for a visit, until I was 24(1991). I lived in London for two years(1976-78). While Germany has the Autobahn, when I saw Berlin in 1991(two years after the Berlin Wall came down), I found German motorists' to be much more courteous to pedestrians, than British motorists'.
I would imagine the German test is more demanding because of the 'advisory' speed limits(75-81mph) on the Autobahn. Whereas, the M4 Motorway in Britain, has speed limits(40-60mph) that are a lot lower, and not 'advisory' like on the Autobahn.
