The brighter you are, the less likely you are to pass your driving test first time, a new study concludes. By contrast, motorists with fewer academic qualifications are more likely to pass first time.
Insurers Privilege DriveXpert conducted the analysis of 1,564 people with a full UK driving licence and found that 59 percent of those with no qualifications passed first time. People who had undergraduate degrees had a first time pass rate of 48 percent.
Interestingly, people who studied maths and science needed more attempts to get their licence than those more arts and culture inclined. Experts suspect motorists with more academic minds may over-think the challenge they face.
Dr Lee Hadlington, senior lecturer in Psychology at De Montfort University said： ’Those who don’t have formal academic qualifications could rely more heavily on procedural skills like motor control and hand-eye co-ordination, hence may be better suited to activities like passing a driving test.’
