Does it really matter where you take your test?
Rewarded with freedom, career prospects and new friends, getting on the road can be the best thing you’ve ever done. But, some areas of the UK can be more difficult to pass your test. Should this be allowed? Why isn’t it all the same standards?
Advanced Driving Instructor Sandra Macdonald-Ames, who was the driving expert in the BBC documentary So You Think You Can Drive, said: “test centres with higher pass rates tend to be in rural areas.”
|TEST CENTRES WITH HIGHEST PASS RATES (2013/14)||%|
|Isle of Mull||80|
|Isle of Skye (Portree)||72.2|
|Barrow in Furness||68.3|
|TEST CENTRES WITH LOWEST PASS RATES (2013/14)||%|
|South Yardley (Birmingham)||32.4|
|Wood Green (London)||34.2|
