10 Reasons For Failing Your Driving Test

Research shows that learners who have a combination of Professional Instruction and Private Practice do better at driving tests. On average, those who pass have had 47 hours of Professional Instruction and 20 hours of Private Practice.

Top 10 reasons pupils fail the driving test:

  • Observations at junctions - ineffective observations and judgement.
  • Reverse Parking - ineffective observations or lack of accuracy.
  • Use of Mirrors - not checking or not acting on the information.
  • Moving away - ineffective observations or control when moving away.
  • Use of Signals - not given, not cancelled or misleading signals.
  • Incorrect Positioning - at roundabouts, lanes and bends.
  • Reverse around a Corner - ineffective observations or lack of accuracy.
  • Lack of Steering Control - steering too early or leaving it too late.
  • Turn Round in Road - ineffective observations or lack of accuracy.
  • Inappropriate Speed - travelling too slowly, or too fast.
