    28-year-old woman has failed her driving theory test 110 times

    28-year-old woman has failed her driving theory test 110 times

    Learning to drive is a rite of passage for a lot of people – the sense of freedom and responsibility you get after passing is something a lot of people strive for.

    For some people though passing your test isn’t quite as easy as you’d think – a 28-year-old woman has taken her theory test 110 times, and still hasn’t passed! The learner from Southwark, South-east London has spent a massive £3,410 in a bid to show that she knows the theory behind driving.

    The theory test costs £31 a time and comprises of two sections – 50 multiple-choice questions and a hazard perception exam. Nationally it has an average pass rate of 65.4%.

    It seems that no other learner has even come close to the number of attempts the 28-year-old took. A 30-year-old man from Peterborough has failed his driving theory test 86 times, while a 41-year-old man from Birmingham passed on his 80th attempt.

    These figures were released from the Driving and Vehicles Standards Agency (DVSA) and showed that even when people finally managed to pass their theory test, some struggled just as much to master their practical exam. One example was a middle-aged man who only passed his practical driving test on his 37th attempt. The 40-year-old, from Stoke-on-Trent spent over £2,294 to pass his test. The practical driving test currently costs £62 on a weekday or £75 on an evening, weekend or bank holiday.

    A DVSA spokesman said “It is essential that all drivers demonstrate that they have the right skills, knowledge and attitude to drive safely. The driver testing and training tests candidates’ ability to drive safely and responsibly as well as making sure they know the theory behind safe driving”.
