Men are more likely than women to fail their driving tests for driving dangerously, a Freedom of Information request has revealed. 

Deadline News report:

TWICE as many women fail their driving test due to bad parking compared to men – new data has revealed.

While women are more likely to fail a test due to parking or reversing, male drivers are more guilty of driving recklessly and ignoring mirrors or road signs.

The new data, released by Driving Standards Agency (DSA) – via freedom of information – shows failing to observe junctions and checking mirrors accounted for the most number of driving fails last year.
