In Theory, Driving to Improve

August 17th, 2007
Adrian Butterworth

Government Ministers have responded to criticisms of driving standards by upgrading the driving test. The Driving Standards Agency hope to improve road safety with 50 multiple choice questions instead of the current 30. The percentage pass mark has remained the same at 86%.

Drivers will start taking the new theory test from September 3rd when the time allowed for the test will increase to 57 minutes and the fees will go up from £21.50 to £28.50.

Both the theory test and practical tests can be booked online and the website also allows you to practice with the questions that could be asked.

The government is particularly worried about fatal accidents involving young drivers. A decade ago there were just under 14 deaths per 100,000 drivers aged 17 to 20. In 2005 that figure had climbed to just over 19.

Other new proposals would mean a year long training period so that young adults would not get full licences until over 18. There would also be a zero tolerance attitude to drinking for newly qualified drivers and they would retake their tests if any alcohol showed up in their blood.
