Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

- Hello, National Police, your identity papers please. - Hello Officer, they are in my glove compartment. Here they are ! Is there a problem? I wasn't driving too fast, I hope? - No, you were under the speed limit, but you neglected to indicate [US: signal] when you took the last turn. - With all due respect, I'm sure that I indicated [US: used my turn signal]. Look, it's still on! - Then that means that your back left indicator [US: turn signal] is broken. - Oh no! I didn't know that! - I'll let it slide this time, but have it fixed this weekend at the latest, OK? - It will be done, thank you very much Officer.

Getting that for you now...
