I'm not convinced that the most well known multiple choice trivia test is
actually that useful:

So I wrote my own:

Disclaimer - one of the "correct" answers may well be wrong now. Well, at least

I'm not aware of any other tests. Sadly Klortho The Magnificent has not been
offering Perl Certification recently, but if he restarted, the sorry state of
the Yankee Peso would make them extremely good value for money.
