The Best Place to do your Drivers Test?

April 18th



The toughest place to get your licence might well be Dublin - the four test centres in the capital have some of the lowest pass rates in the country for the category B driving test.

While on average 49.5 per cent of tests nationally are passed, the pass rate at the Finglas test centre is just 40.15%, the numbers revealed by Dublin Live show.

The pass rate is also below the national average in Kilkenny where just 41.29% of tests end in a pass.

Meanwhile, it looks like it might be easier to get your licence in the west of the country.

The test centre in Newcastle West in Co Limerick has a pass rate of 70.33%, the highest of anywhere in the country.

Here in Kerry Figures released by the Road Safety Authority show a pass rate of 64.5% in Tralee and 61.7% in Killarney for 2016, that's a full 14 percent more than the national average.  

Behind there came the test centres in Kilrush, Co Clare (65.23%), Clifden in Galway (64.32%), Roscommon (60.25%) and Skibbereen in County Cork (60.13%).

If you want to be on the road anytime soon, it just proves... the best place to learn is down here!
