Learner drivers are more likely to fail their driving test in Derry than in any other test centre in the north.

Figures released today by the Department of Environment covering the three months between April and June show that less than one in two drivers pass when taking their test in Derry

A total of 1065 learners sat their practical test in Derry during that time, with 46% passing.

The Altnagelvin centre pass rate is considerably lower than the Northern Ireland average of 57% and well below the highest centre for pass rates, Downpatrick, where 71% of drivers taking their test passed during those three months.
