STEETON'S driving test centre has the highest pass rate in West Yorkshire, according to new figures.

The Steeton Grove site had an average pass rate of 54.8 per cent in the second half of last year, compared to a regional and UK average of 50 per cent.

A total of 1,855 tests were taken at the centre during the period. The figures also show that male candidates fared slightly better then females – with a 56.9 per cent pas rate, compared to 52.3.

Of West Yorkshire's 11 test centres, the most difficult place to pass your test – with a success rate of 40.2 per cent – was Leeds.

The research was carried out by Collingwood Insurance Services, using DVLA data.

Liz Laidler, for the company, said: "Booking in a driving test is a daunting time for anyone with ambitions to get behind the wheel, and this data is an interesting snapshot of the differences between urban and rural driving! It turns out that location is key when it comes to booking your test.

"Good luck to anyone looking to pass their test in the near future – and remember, practice makes perfect!"
