Llanelli’s worst learner driver joined by other long suffering candidates

Llanelli’s worst learner driver was not the only one to hit double figures to secure a test pass. Further data released by the DVSA revealed that another female, from the same 41-50 age group, passed her test at the 15th time of asking.

Another two women from the age group passed at the 14th attempt, while a 60 year-old female also passed after 14 attempts. On this note, Book Theory Test Today apologises for what appears to be a bit of lady bashing, but these are the facts, sorry!

80th birthday celebrations

The data was released by the DVSA in the week that the driving test celebrates its 80 birthday. The test became compulsory way back on June 1, 1935.

In the previous year just 1.5 million cars were on the UK’s roads, but 7,000 people were killed as a result of road accidents. However, 12 months after the test was introduced the death toll dropped to just 1,000.  

Newly appointed Transport Minister, Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon said: “The driving test is a significant rite of passage, giving greater freedom and independence to generations of people across Britain. This country has a proud tradition of leading innovation and the driving test is just one example of us continually improving, making our roads some of the safest in the world.”
