Driving test pass rates up in Q3 2011
The increase in the number of tests conducted during the quarter in comparison with the previous year (Q3 2010/11) is due to the milder winter weather in late 2011.
The heavy snowfall throughout most of Great Britain in December 2010 led to a reduction in the number of tests conducted and lowered candidate demand for tests.
Overall, the practical car test pass rate has increased slightly from 44 per cent in 2007/08 to 46 per cent in 2010/11. The pass rate for the first three quarters of 2011/12 is 47 per cent.
The number of car tests taken by females is higher than for males largely due to females having a lower pass rate than males, hence taking higher number of tests before passing.
