New research into driving test changes

Research published today shows over 80% of newly qualified drivers said the test better prepared them for driving on Great Britain’s roads.

86% of candidates also said they used a sat nav at least some of the time after passing their test, saying practising with it was “more realistic and was a more likely scenario to encounter in the future”. See DVSA website to look uo the Full Survey information.
