A recent survey carried out by the AA has found that people in London and the south-east England had more attempts at taking their driving test than candidates in other regions of the UK.
Online PR News – 16-April-2010 – – The survey of 20,109 AA members has found people from London and south-east England took an average of 2.1 attempts to pass, more than the UK average of 2.
The east of England seemed to perform the best with the average person taking 1.87 attempts to pass their driving test. Road conditions, time of day or even year can have an adverse affect on people passing.
AA Driving School director Simon Douglas has said that various factors can affect the local pass rate, including population.
He said: "In some less-populated regions, learners find it relatively less challenging."
The people of London and the south-east are unfortunate to incur extra costs for additional driving tests. Driving Standards Agency suggests already, on average, a person undertakes about 45 hours of professional driving lessons.
The cost of lessons and driving tests, combined with buying a car and paying for UK motor insurance, means learning to drive can be a costly qualification, no matter what region you live in.
