This depends which country you come from..

It's apparently much easier to pass in Australia than in the UK.

But compared to some Asian countries it will be much harder.

Ensure you take the relevant state based online practice tests, for the state you are living in.

I drove in Europe once, pulled out from a petrol station and all of a sudden I was facing all the traffic coming at me

To get a learner permit, you need to pass the Learner's Theory Test.
This can be very different in each State, so, as I mentioned, do the one relevant to your state.

My fiance was doing a practice one online, and asked me some questions, which I didn't know. She was doing the Victoria one, we are in Qld.
A hook turn? That's where you get in the left lane to Turn right !!! (Only in Melbourne)
