It has recently been revealed that more than half of UK motorists think the driving test is too easy. With as many as 89% of those who have passed the test in the last two years saying the test should be tougher.
Driving instructors also have serious concerns about the test, with 75% expressing their fear that the test is letting too many unprepared drivers roam the roads freely.
With 54% of all drivers that have taken the test saying that it was too easy and 21% admitting they felt unprepared or incapable of driving alone after gaining a full license it could be believed that there are a few flaws in the driving test process.
Of those who had passed their test in the last two years, 89 per cent said the test could be improved to better prepare them for the road while nearly a quarter said they had been involved in a car accident because of a lack of driving skills.
Road crashes are the number one killer of people in their teens and 20s in the UK, once again proving that this age group are not properly equipped to deal with the dangers the roads pose- leaving motorists unaware of the dangers especially when night driving and on wet roads.
Nearly all of the 150 driving instructors questioned in a separate survey believed that as well as night driving and wet road training, they also believe that motorists should have motorway training included in their test to ensure young drivers are ready and know what to expect.
These points are all resulting at the same outcome- the driving test is too easy to pass and doesn’t fully equip drivers with the skills and knowledge to confidently drive alone after passing.
