Londoners 'most likely to fail' driving testMon, 21 Jul 2014 00:00:00 -0700
LEARNERS gearing up to take their first driving test are twice as likely to pass in Scotland as those in London, according to analysis of driving test results by a car insurance company.
Its analysis reveals that London has the test centres with the four lowest pass rates in the country for first time test-takers. Only 31% of learner drivers in Belvedere passing the first time, while Wanstead (32%), Barking (32%) and Wood Green (33%) were the other lowest scoring centres in the capital, all with first time pass rates significantly below the national average (48%), the study by Privilege Car Insurance found.
By contrast, Scotland dominates the top of the table for successful first time novice drivers, with a 70% pass rate in Kelso. Lochgilphead (69%) and Stranraer (67%) were other top scorers.
