Numbers can be a reassurance for many people—stats in particular tend to set people’s minds at ease. If you’re one of these types of people, you might be interested in hearing about pass rates. For example, did you know that the current pass rate for learners in the UK stands at 45.9%? For learners in the North West, this increases slightly—with a 47.3% pass rate. But what about learners at Widnes test centre?
As you can see—compared to the average pass rate for the UK—the pass rates for Widnes aren’t that impressive. You might even find them a bit disheartening. You should remember, however, that the pass rate doesn’t account for your personal driving ability. Follow your instructor’s advice and you should be more than prepared to face your practical at Widnes test centre.
