5. It is definitely a bias-based proposal.
The test itself would be far more complex linguistically than any driving would be. The US uses most of the same international highway signs as the rest of the world, and you could drive from one end of the country to the other without knowing anything more than the most basic words - such as 'exit'. Even if they don't know what 'Stop Ahead' means, they will know a stop sign when they see it.

Just because they may not be able to read "Which is the stop sign?", it doesn't mean they don't know what a stop sign is.
