Driving Test Accidents

Hundreds of learner drivers are involved in accidents whilst on their driving tests every year – According to new figures released recently.

Almost 100 driving examiners have reported sustaining injuries whilst monitoring a pupil on their test – However the majority of these found that they could not blame their pupil for the accident, with 241 out of the 405 reported bumps being caused by other drivers.

Of the incidents caused by learners, 120 were caused by incorrect steering and 26 were blamed on braking – However only 58 vehicles were reported to have sustained serious damage, compared to only 58 with minor damage, and just 9 with no damage at all after making contact with another vehicle.

Safe driving from Britannia!
