Just Can't Pass!

Could you imagine failing a test time and time again?

It's happening to a Britain 28 year old who has has failed a record 107 attempts at the car theory test and is still yet to pass.

The hapless unnamed 28-year old, from London, has so far spent £3,317 (S$6,335) trying to pass the theory test, at a cost of £31 each.

The test includes a 57-minute multiple choice exam which 43 out of 50 questions must be answered correctly and a hazard perception test which requires a pass mark of 44 out of 75. Motorists must pass both parts before they can sit their practical test.

A 40-year-old determined candidate logged a record number of practical driving tests - passing on his 37th attempt, the Daily Telegraph reported. The unnamed man from the area of Stoke on Trent forked out at least £2,294 trying to pass, which could have brought him a reasonable second hand car.

The practical test costs £62 for a test on a weekday or £75 for a test on an evening, weekend or bank holiday.

The car practical driving test is designed to see if motorists can drive safely on different road and traffic conditions and know the Highway Code.

An AA Driving School spokesperson said: “This is clearly an unusually high number of test attempts, but it is important to remember that everyone learns at their own pace.

“Their determination to pass highlights how important learning to drive is to most people.

“It is a milestone that many people aspire to achieving because of the freedom and independence it brings.”
