British woman fails driving test 90 times
The 26 year old set a British record by failing 90th time.

London: A young British woman has failed her driving theory exam an astonishing 90 times, spending about 3,000 pounds before she even sits for the practical test, a media report said Thursday.

The 26-year-old from London, who last appeared in her theory test in November 2010, set a British record by failing for the 90th time, the Daily Mail reported.

The Driving Standards Agency revealed the figures after a Freedom of Information request to find the worst drivers in Britain.

The driving theory test costs 31 pounds to sit and is a multiple choice exam in which a wannabe driver has to get 43 or more questions out of 50 correct within 57 minutes before taking to the road for their practical test, the daily said.

According to the figures, a 39-year-old man from the West Midlands, England has set a record for the most number of practical tests in Britain.

He failed the last test, his 36th, last year.

The Guinness World Record for the most practical driving tests ever taken is held by Git Kaur Randhawa, of Hayes, Middlesex, who finally triumphed at her 48th attempt after more than 330 lessons in 1987 just weeks before her 50th birthday.

The world record for the number of theory tests taken is held by a South Korean woman called Cha Sa-soon who passed at her 950th attempt in November 2009.
