Data tables on driving tests updated for July to September 2018.

13 September 2018

In 2019/20, there were about 1.6 million practical driving tests taken in the United Kingdom. Of these less than fifty percent were successful. This was the second year in a row that the number of tests taken had decreased, with the share of passed tests staying relatively constant in respect to overall number.
Driving is still an inherent part of life for many people in the UK and still the most common mode of transport.
Pass rates for practical driving tests were consistently higher for men than women. In 2019/20, 49.6 percent of male participants passed the test, compared with 42.6 percent of female participants. Pass rates declined from 2016/17 onwards after having stayed relatively consistent between 2012/13 and 2016/17.

More than 50 percent of people fail their road driving test the first time, according to Driving Peace, an organization that deals with driving phobia. When it comes to the written portion of the driving test, approximately 44 percent of people fail, according to CBS News.
The average written test is 25 questions long, and passing rates vary by states, according to NASDAQ. In 2011, Missouri recorded the lowest passing rate on its written test, as more than 61 percent of drivers failed. For drivers who fail their written test, however, most states allow them to retake as early as one day afterwards, reports NASDAQ. A driver who fails a road test, however, is required to wait as long as 30 days to retake it.
