According To Research Smart People Take Longer To Pass Their Driving Test

Passing the driving test is a milestone for every teenager. Getting your driver’s license is an exciting moment but it is also a big responsibility. However, a lot of people are impatient to drive around in their cars, with a bunch of friend chilling to an alternative music and going to a McDonald’s drive-thru. It’s the ultimate dream. And even though getting a driver’s license is a passport to freedom for many, not everyone will pass the test on their first try.

Privilege DriveXpert is an insurance company that conducted a research about who is more likely to pass the driving test the first time. They surveyed 1,564 people with British driving licenses and according to the results, those with higher academic abilities might have problems passing the test right away. The reason is that smarter people have a tendency to over-analyze the test. On the other hand, practical-minded folks just won’t.

It took an average of 1.7 attempts for 59% of learner drivers without qualifications to pass the first time.
The number drops to 51% for people with A-Levels. Student’s with undergrad degrees had a passing rate of 48% and those with postgraduate qualification had a rate of 47%. What’s more surprising is that there was a split even between arts and science A-Level students. The ones studying for creative subjects took approximately 1.9 tries, whereas students studying science took 2.3 times. Furthermore, according to the research, business owners will take the test more than four times.

The report explains: “Failing a driving test first time can feel like a major set-back for a new driver. But our research has shown a link between qualifications and professional position held and the number of times it takes a person to pass their practical driving test. Those with no qualifications are more likely to pass first time.”

Also, the Head of Privilege DriveXpert, Charlotte Fielding, made the following statement:”Passing first time isn’t the be-all and end-all of driving ability as many of the main skills we need to equip ourselves for our driving careers are learned over the years as our experience on the roads builds.”

According to the research there is a link between the academic and professional success of someone and passing their driving test.

So if you failed the test multiple times don’t worry. You are not the only one. Here is Jaden Smith expressing his disappointment over his failed driving test.

Also, the famous singer Meghan Trainor will tell you not to give up.

She  tweeted: “When you fail your DMV written test the first time..but pass the second time.”
