- the total numbers of driving theory and practical tests both increased over the last year, by 17% and 5% respectively. In the last quarter, 444,000 practical and 572,000 theory tests were conducted, almost 90% being car tests
- the most rapid increases were again for Large Goods Vehicle (LGV) tests, up 34% overall, reflecting the improving economy and current high demand for professional lorry drivers
