You thought it was tough passing your driving test? This 38 year old from Liverpool found it a little tougher.
The Liverpudlian has the most practical driving tests under his belt in the whole of the U.K. He took 39 sittings in total.
How can it get to the stage where you enter a car with the examiner for the 39th time? One thing is for sure, the guy has a heart of steel.
As to whether I would want to be on his team, I am not sure I can answer that.
This man has spent almost £2500 on driving tests alone. Not to mention the cost of all if his lessons. If he had any that is.
As for the driving theory test a 30 year old woman from Ilford takes the crown with a massive 113 sittings.
Considering each test should take about an hour to complete, this woman has spent over 100 hours of her life sitting theory tests.
What should I take from this?
