Barry's driving test centre has featured in a list of the top ten test centres with the highest pass rate in the United Kingdom.

It comes after a recent study by Moneybarn has revealed the easiest and toughest places to take your on-road driving test.

A new breakdown found learners are most likely to pass their test in Dorchester, with a pass rate of 62.4 per cent.

The data comes after changes were made to the driving test in 2017 which effectively made it more difficult for learners to get their licence.

Student drivers now have to 20-minute independent driving section where they must follow a sat nav device, as well as complete two additional "show me, tell me" questions.

  1. Dorchester - 62.4%
  2. Yeovil - 61.9%
  3. Northallerton - 61.8%
  4. Ipswich - 60.1%
  5. Durham - 60%
  6. Bridlington - 58.3%
  7. Newton - 58.3%
  8. Ashfield - 58.2%
  9. Barry - 58%
  10. Chorley - 57%

Yeovil in South Somerset is another place you're likely to see success, with just under 62 per cent of learners passing with ease.

A new breakdown by Moneybarn found learners are most likely to pass their test in Dorchester, with a pass rate of 62.4 per cent.

New drivers eager to get their licence also have luck in Northallerton in North Yorkshire and Ipswich in Suffolk, with 61 and 60 per cent passing.

Meanwhile, The Pavillion in Birmingham is the toughest place to take your test, with just 28.6 per cent of drivers earning a pass.

Speke in Liverpool and Erith in London are some other hotspots with a poor success rate with only 32.5 and 33 per cent of learners passing.
