    Have you looked at the menox controls? It mounts on the right side and is a simple forward for brake, pull for throttle setup. I've found 4 or 5 used sets on ebay and craigslist then we just put them in our selves. Here's a video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3x9Zfe2MP4

It wasn't difficult.

    There are two parts to the test, one theoretical and one practical. Both must be passed for a driver to be considered competent.
    Training for the theory test can be done with a driving school which provides numerous sample exam papers.
    A set number of hours of training must be completed with a driving school.
    The practical test is taken in a driving school (dual control) car and the driving instructor accompanies the examiner and person being tested. The examiner gives instructions in Spanish (or English if it's been arranged in advance) to the driving student.


    I only rode motorbikes and was never interested in cars so I didnt have a car license before, the good thing is I do not need to the Theoretical test, so I can go straight to driving.
    Sadly its not as easy as to going to a parking lot for a practice, I need to pay the driving school to be a able to practice and then pay again to be examined by a different person and it can be vert strict and even if you can drive well you could fail for numerous small problems, and then have to reschedule and wait weeks for another try. A lot of bureaucracy with this to get more money here.

    I myself already did few practice runs with the car and and I asked to do the exam as fast as possible and now have to wait a month until an official instructor can see if I pass or not.

    Looks good, ill have to see how legal it is over here in Spain, Europe regulations are very picky many times. It would definitely have to be installed by some official garage and then the car would need to approved by official government inspection.
