With driving tests being just days away from resuming on April 22 many learner drivers are itching to get that long awaited pass result.

However, for those hoping to take their test in Speke they might want to brush up on their skills as a new online tool has revealed the chances of passing at the centre as low.

According to a pass probability calculator - released by learner driver insurers, Marmalade - those taking their test in Speke have just a 32.55% chance of passing which is far lower than the national average.

The tool uses ten years worth of data, supplied by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Authority (DVSA), to predict pass probability for every month at every UK test centre.

For this month Speke isn't currently the hardest place in the country to pass, with a 0.21% higher chance of passing than learners in East London.

Although later in the year the chance to pass in Speke plummets to the lowest in the country, with the October pass rate being just 27%.

That is almost half the national average pass rate of 49.59%.

A DVSA Spokesperson said: “DVSA’s priority is to help everyone through a lifetime of safe driving.

“The driver testing and training regime tests candidates’ ability to drive safely and responsibly as well as making sure they know the theory behind safe driving.

“All candidates are assessed to the same standard and the result of their test is entirely dependent on their performance on the day.”

Crispin Moger, CEO at Marmalade said: “The five elements of a driving test remain the same across the UK for both manual and automatic cars, however, there are certain benefits to taking your test in a smaller town.

"Where there is less congestion and fewer roundabouts and learners may find their driving test to run smoother than in a more built-up area.

“To be in with the best chance of passing their test, learner drivers should ensure they are as prepared as possible.

"If learners are driving in a busier area, they should drive their test routes as often as they can, so they can get used to the roads in a variety of conditions.”
