Learner drivers in West Yorkshire beware! Britainâ€™s worst driving instructor is in your area. Book Theory Test Today reveals all…
Look out learners in West Yorkshire! If youâ€™re looking for a driving instructor you may want to avoid this one for help with your driving tuition and theory test preparation.
The instructor in question is female, and â€˜boastsâ€™ a miniscule 15 percent pass rate, which consists of 143 driving test failures and just 26 passes across a three year period. One of her candidates has failed the practical exam a whopping 27 times.
The Book Theory Test Today blogger says: â€œThe woman remains unnamed, but what we do know is that she has presided over preparing 169 candidates, in the West Yorkshire region, for their practical exam. It should come as no surprise that the West Yorkshire region was recently unveiled as the home of Britainâ€™s worst learner drivers.â€
Alongside the unnamed female driver, three other instructors in the West Yorkshire region form part of a list featuring the UKâ€™s top 12 worst driving instructors.
The information, provided courtesy of a Freedom of Information request submitted to the DVSA, highlights a male instructor in the region who has achieved a poor pass rate of just 23 percent, well below the national average of 47.1 percent.
The unnamed man â€˜boastsâ€™ a pass rate of just 33 out of 145 practical exams between April 2010 and 2013, with one of those candidates proving to be unsuccessful on 17 occasions.
The data does not reveal how many of the candidates, under the tuition of these instructors, failed the theory test at the first attempt.
Book Theory Test Today says: â€œEarlier this year news reports circulated regarding the town of Heckmondwike, West Yorkshire, which came top of the rankings for poor theory test and practical exam pass rates adding to the woe of poor instructor performance.â€
In a statement from the DVSA they said: â€œWe train examiners to a high standard and closely monitor their work.â€
In a further statement from a DVSA spokesperson, they said: â€œThe pass rate of a driving instructor is no reflection of their teaching standard. Instructors may not have trained the candidate, but only presented them for the test. Others focus on training candidates who have difficulty in learning to drive.â€
The spokesperson added: â€œAll registered Approved Driving Instructors (ADI) must pass extensive tests, including a version of the theory test, to meet the high standards set by the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) before giving professional tuition, and are subject to regular checks throughout their career.â€
Book Theory Test Today concludes: â€œItâ€™s always best to do your research when searching for a driving instructor; after all, itâ€™s their guidance that you will help you to pass the theory test and practical exam.â€
