Detail

This publication presents information on the number and pass rates of driving and riding tests conducted in Great Britain to 31 June 2012 (beginning of the 2012/13 financial year).

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

Key points

  • A total of 410,778 tests were conducted across all test categories between April and June 2012 (Q1 2012/13). This is a decrease of 4.9% in comparison with the same quarter in 2011/12.
  • The reduction in the number of tests conducted in quarter 1 2012/13 is likely to have been due to the continuing economic situation and the Jubilee long weekend at the beginning of June 2012.
  • The practical car test pass rate was unchanged from quarter 1 2011/12, at 47%.
  • At the end of the quarter there were 46,313 approved driving instructors on the Register.
