Numbers of driving instructors and learner drivers taking part in the driving test trial, and the number of tests booked.
This data set comes from data held by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).
It isn’t classed as an ‘official statistic’. This means it’s not subject to scrutiny and assessment by the UK Statistics Authority.
The government is trialling driving test changes in 2015 and 2016 to make it a better test of the driver’s ability to drive safely on their own.
This data shows the numbers of approved driving instructors and learner drivers taking part in the trial, and the number of tests booked.
Data you cannot find could be published as:
You can send an FOI request if you still cannot find the information you need.
By law, DVSA cannot send you information that’s part of an official statistic that hasn’t yet been published.
