Over half of motorists pass at first attempt

If you’re thinking of learning to drive for the first time this year, it can be an exciting yet daunting experience.

  Carzone’s 2016 Motoring Report findings recorded that almost a third (29%) of Irish motorists took to the wheel at the age of 17, with the majority (41%) learning to drive between the ages of 17-20.

  You may know all of the theory and rules of the road, but getting behind the wheel for the very first time is a completely different story. The first time you sit in the driver’s seat you’ll be nervous; it’s only natural and the only way to overcome this is through practice! Practice appeared to make perfect for over half (57%) of Irish motorists who boasted of passing their test first time round. So good luck!
