After 157 attempts and Rs 3lakh, this man FINALLY clears driver’s learner test
Your involvement in an exercise despite your failure shows your commitment towards it. But there is again limit to the number of times you would try to achieve a task.
Your involvement in an exercise despite your failure shows your commitment towards it. But there is again limit to the number of times you would try to achieve a task. Relentless efforts could throw some really unexpected result. This man from England just proved that.
How many times would you try to learn a skill, once, twice, 10 times, 50 times? Started to sound weird? Yes, this man did not give up his driving test despite failing for 157 times and kept on trying until he finally passed it on the 158th attempt.

In the process, the man also had to spend £3,000 (Rs 3 lakh) while filling the application formalities. And, now even though he has finally passed his theory test, one must wonder what will happen when he has to give the practical test.
As per the statistics released by Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency, until now the country’s second-biggest failure is a woman in her 30s, who has taken the theory test 117 times and has not passed it yet. And, in third place is a 48-year-old woman who finally passed in her 94th attempt.
And, when it comes to clearing the practical test, a 72-year-old Englishman succeeded in gaining his license after 43 attempts to get his licence, while a 47-year-old woman still has not passed despite 41 attempts.
As such cases come to light, many raised questions that if one needs these many times to clear a learner’s test should they be even allowed behind the wheel of a car. Reacting to such queries, Director of Select Car Leasing, Mark Tongue said, “It’s true what they say: If at first you don’t succeed try, try and try again. Passing your driving test can be one of life’s trickiest challenges and it can take some of us many more attempts than others.”
He said, “But whether you fail your test once or 157 times, there’s no shame in picking yourself up and having another go – and anyone who can do that deserves great credit.”
