Originally intended as a patent medicine when it was invented in the late 19th century, Coca-Cola was bought out by businessman Asa Griggs Candler, whose marketing tactics led Coke to its dominance of the world soft drink market throughout the 20th century. Although faced with critiques of its health effects and various allegations of wrongdoing by the company, Coca-Cola has remained a popular soft drink to the present day.
A driver’s license (U.S., South Korea), driving licence (UK, Ireland, Hong Kong, Pakistan, India, Singapore, Malta), driver’s licence (Canada, Australia, [driver licence in Queensland], New Zealand), or operator’s license is an official document which states that a person may operate a motorized vehicle, such as a motorcycle, car, truck, or a bus. In some jurisdictions, driver’s licenses are issued after the recipient has passed a driving test, while in others, a person acquires a driver’s license before beginning to drive. (This is largely a matter of nomenclature – generally an official document by some name is required to undertake practical driving in either case.) Different categories of license may exist for different types of motor vehicles. The difficulty of the driving test may vary considerably between regions, as do prerequisites such as age restrictions and the required level of tuition.
