Dear Mr Stephens

 

Information requested under the Freedom of Information Act (FoIA)

 

Further to our recent email, I can confirm that we have handled your
request for information about driving faults within the terms of the FoIA.

 

Your request and our response is as follows:

 

Q1. Year 2013/14, top ten reasons for failing; Junctions (observation),
Use of mirrors - (change direction), Control (steering), Junctions
(turning right), Response to signals (traffic lights), Move off (safety),
Move off (control), Positioning (normal driving), Reverse park (control),
Response to signals (road markings).
   
 The 9th reason for failing the driving test in 2014 was Reverse Park

A1. The figure used for the “Reverse park (control)” is a combined figure
for both the manoeuvre in a carpark and on the road.

ask for an internal review by contacting the Information Compliance
