There were 1,426 dangerous faults in Huddersfield last year from 7,312 tests. Instructors in the area believe that this could be due to the fact that the area has difficult roads with all of the test routes including steep hills.
Instructors in the area see this statistic as a sign of the difficulty of tests in the area and that learners end up as better drivers.
Only three test centres produced worse results than Huddersfield – Luton, Wood Green in London and Darwen in Blackburn.
The kind of mistakes that can land you with a dangerous fault include not observing properly at junctions, unsafe steering and not using your mirrors to change direction – or a combination of these as it is possible to get more than one dangerous fault on the same test.
