Local Driving Test Pass Rates Above Average

Drivers in the Waterford city have a better chance of passing their driving test compared to their counterparts in Dungarvan.

2013 Waterford recorded a 59 per cent driving test pass rate, with Dungarvan just behind on 55 per cent.

The figures for both test centres are above the national average.

Figures obtained for the Road Safety Authority (RSA) by ‘Irish Country Living’, show that pass rates varied from 42 per cent to 69 per cent in 2013, with a national average of 52 per cent.

For a successful driving test outcome, it looks as though drivers should head West as the centre with the highest amount of passes was Tuam in County Galway, followed by Sligo, Ennis and Roscommon.

The centre with the lowest amount of passes was Rathgar in Dublin with just 42 per cent.

And, continuing an old debate, it seems men are better drivers than women as 55 per cent of men passed in 2013 compared to 48 per cent of women.
