Woman fails driving theory test for 105th time at Ilford test centre
A woman has failed her driving theory test a staggering 105 times.
The most recent test was at the Driving Standards Agency centre in Ilford Hill.
The woman’s identity is a mystery but she comfortably topped a national list of people who attempted the exam more than 15 times released by the Driving Standards Agency.
At the current price of �31 a go, the woman could have spent up to �3,255 on retakes.
The theory exam includes hazard perception and multiple choice questions.
