SC-learnerheaderimage-03.06.16

Information released by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) highlights some of the worst learner attempts amongst us Brits, which begged the question, should people be able to sit tests after a certain amount of fails? The town of Heckmondwike situated in Yorkshire equated for a fifth of the top 20 practical test repeaters whilst a 38-year old man from Liverpool took 39 attempts to get his hands on a pass.

The DVSA’s Chief examiner, Lesley Young states “The result of their tests is entirely dependent on their performance on the day… It’s essential that all drivers demonstrate they have the right skills, knowledge and attitude to drive safely.” The top entry on the list was a woman in Ilford who sat the theory test 113 times.

Spot number two went to a 40 year old man who tried 107 times, again in Ilford succeeded by a 30 year old man who failed 86 times in Peterborough. England’s 20 worst drivers had untaken their practical test a total of 700 times between them. Do you think there should be a limit as to how many times a person can take a test? We’d love to know your thoughts.
