Need to book your test?

Driving Standards Agency DSA This is official online booking site, please be aware there are many sites that charge you extra to book your test through them. We would strongly suggest only booking your practical driving test through the official site.

Driving test routes.

Please note the DSA stopped supplying details of test routes a few years ago. The routes listed are the last routes the DSA published for your local test centre. Therefore the routes and even in some instances the test centre location may have changed.

Driving test pass rates explained.

The local driving test centre pass rates quoted here are gathered from the Driving Standards Agencies (DSA) own official statistics.

Each time a candidate (learner) takes a UK practical driving test, the result and any marks, both driving faults and any failure marks are recorded and sent to the DSA’s head office where the figures are collated both locally for that test centre and also nationally.

The DSA no longer openly publish these figures on their website, however we have been able to obtain these official figures and have published them here as we feel they are of interest to anyone waiting to take their practical driving test.

Understanding your local driving test centre pass rates.

An average pass rate of 48% would mean that if 100 candidates take the practical driving test on any given day then on average only 48 will pass and 52 candidates will fail!

The most common driving faults (16 of these and you will fail) are; incorrect use of gears and not using the cars mirrors correctly.

Regarding the failure marks (only 1 and you fail) the common causes are lack of planning and awareness, plus poor judgement of other traffic and road users.

So what can you do to help yourself pass?

The simple answer is of course to drive well and to the best of your ability, however how do you make sure you drive to the best of your ability on the driving test?

Thankfully learners now have so many excellent learning aids to help them pass, such as the excellent Driving Test Secret and Driving Test Secret Revision Cards.

If only every learner would take the little time and effort needed to use the “Secret” then we could quickly see the local and national pass rates increase dramatically. The reason is that although some of the failures are due to lack of practice, many are simply down to a lack of preparation for the driving test, something the “secret” can quickly help to address.

So let us help you to help yourself.
