Three-quarters of UK motorists confident they would pass driving test again

15th August 2012

An impressive 76 per cent of UK motorists are convinced they'd have no problems passing their practical driving test should they retake it, a GEM Motoring Assist poll has found.

In fact, 74 per cent were cocksure enough to claim they'd be less nervous retaking their test now compared to the first time around.

However, while the vast majority believe they've still got the skills needed to ace the practical, the theory left them less confident, with 41 per cent unsure of how they would do.

In addition, only thirty-five per cent agreed they know the Highway Code now as well as they did when they passed.

“It’s great to see that, as a nation, we are very confident in our driving ability," responded David Williams MBE, CEO of GEM Motoring Assist.

He added that drivers should make an effort to keep as up to date with the Highway Code as possible to reduce the chance of accidents.
