How to give yourself the best possible chance of passing

In St Albans, more people fail their driving test than pass …

In 2011, 1.3 million people in the UK sat the driving test.  Yet of those only 507,000 passed.  That’s just 39%.  So more than 6 out of 10 people were left disappointed and considerably out of pocket.  Look deeper and the pass rate for 1st time candidates is even lower.  Worse still the pass rate is on a downward curve, and is expected to carry on in that direction.

In St Albans the current passrate is 40%, very much in line with the national figure.

So the test gets harder, but I am proud that I consistently outperform that average pass rate.  This takes effort and perseverance, from instructor and pupil.  Above all you need to be fully prepared in all the aspects of your driving.
