One in Six to Fail Driving Re-Test

A whopping one in six drivers currently on the roads would fail their driving test if they were made to take it again, a new survey has revealed.

Up to 16% of motorists believe that they would struggle mainly with the Theory test if they had to sit the exam again – Leading for many to question the standard of those behind the wheel on UK roads.

Some of the more common reasons for failing a driving re-test include being unable to remember what road signs mean, and questions regarding safety when overtaking and even down to stopping distances in different conditions.

However motorcyclists seem to have fared better in the results of the research – Due to needing to stay more alert when on the roads, the results suggest that bikers would succeed in far greater numbers than car drivers in a re-test.
