Driving school BSM discovered this top twenty league table from a Freedom of Information request to the Driving Standards Agency.

Mark Peacock, head of BSM, said: “Passing your driving test is a great achievement in itself so to do it faultlessly is really special.

“The top twenty faultless test centres covers a mix of small, medium and large centres and those in rural and urban areas.

“There is often talk of which test centres are ‘easier’ to pass at, but the most important element to successfully learning to drive is having a good instructor.

“Being taught by someone who you get on well with and enjoy learning from makes all the difference between a good experience and a negative one.”

To pass the driving test, learners can make up to 15 driver faults and must not make any serious or dangerous faults. On average learners make about 7 driver faults during their test.
