Two areas in Berkshire have been named as the hardest places to pass your driving test in the county.
Test centres in Reading and Slough saw just over half of learners achieve a pass last year.
New figures released by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency show that only 55 per cent of learners throughout Berkshire passed their test between April 2020 and March 2021.
However, that was up from 47.4 per cent the year before.
The numbers of tests conducted in 2020/21 was also far below previous years because of the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown.
