I do not know the US test, but over here a lot has be done over the last 3-4 decades to really try and teach people more on not just how to drive but also how to handle dangerous situations and also first aid.
Things like everyone going on a test track trying driving on "ice"* and also how to handle if one happens to put a wheel of the road. The right way is, don't panic, slow down and be gentle when maneuvering the wheels back on the road - this because if people panic and jerk the steering to get all wheels back on the road the risk the car reacts to fast and that can then become a head on collision with oncoming traffic.
*It is really Teflon made wet.
I wish everyone was made to take a brush up course say every ten years and a new test, that would stop people getting bad habit like for example only using mirrors and not looking over ones shoulder before turning.
