The woman from south east London who has not been named, has the biggest number of failures under her belt, but is followed by many more including a 30-year-old man from Peterborough who has had 86 unsuccessful attempts.

A 41-year-old learner from Birmingham eventually passed on his 80th try but a 27-year-old man from Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, has still not managed to get enough answers right after 64 efforts.

The figures were published on the Mail Online following a Freedom of Information request to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).

A DVSA spokesman told the website: "It is essential that all drivers demonstrate they have the right skills, knowledge and attitude to drive safely."
