Detail

Information on the number and pass rates of driving and riding practical tests conducted in Great Britain for the quarter to 30 June 2013, and also statistics on driving instructors.

The statistics are derived from data held by the Driver and Vehicles Standards Agency (DVSA), which administers the driving test and training schemes in Great Britain.

Main results

From April to June 2013:

  • 355,255 car practical tests were conducted, 1.8% fewer than in the same quarter of the previous year. The pass rate for these tests was 47.4%, differing only marginally from the same period in 2012.
  • 350,380 car theory tests were conducted, 12.9% more than in the same quarter of the previous year. The pass rate for these tests was 52.2%, 8.6 percentage points lower than one year before. The increase in tests, and reduction in pass rate, are related to changes to the questions asked.

At the end of June 2013, there were 45,387 approved driving instructors on the register, and 2,497 motorcycle riding instructors on the statutory register.
