An unidentified person, who just might be the worlds worst driver, has failed the written portion of the driving exam a record 107 times. The multiple attempts have cause the 28-year-old over $5,100.
The unnamed London, England resident has broken a record after failing the written theory portion of the driving exam 107 times. The test includes two parts, a multiple choice exam and a “hazard perception test.” Both written exams must receive a passing grade before moving on to the road test, according to British law.
As reported by the Telegraph, the unidentified person continues to fail the written test, but has not given up. A spokesman from the AA Driving School is impressed with the 28-year-old’s determination:
“This is clearly an unusually high number of test attempts, but it is important to remember that everyone learns at their own pace. Their determination to pass highlights how important learning to drive is to most people.”
According to the World Health Organization close to 1.3 million people die worldwide from injuries sustained on the road. Furthermore, “Road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death among young people, aged between 15 and 29.”
Thankfully the London resident will not be a licensed driver until the written and driving tests are both completed with passing grades. The written tests, which were failed 107 times have already cost over $5,100. Each additional attempt at the written test will cost around $50.
A 40-year-old man from Stoke on Trent, England held the previous record. He failed the written portion of his driving test 36 times before he finally passed and received his license.
