Discover the optimal time to take your test.

Picking when exactly to take your driving test could provide you with an advantage when it comes to finally gaining your license after hours of learning and practising.

Unfortunately, a number of real world factors get in the way on the road, but a new study from All Car Leasing has worked out which time of day, or day of the week could be the best time to take your test.

On average the time of day that offered the best pass rate was between 14:00 and 14:59 on a Sunday, with that specific slot returning a 55.8 percent pass rate. This time, and day, being helped by the roads being less busy with fewer people commuting.

That being said, it was another Sunday slot – between 12:00-12:59 – being the least successful time, with just 33.8 percent of candidates passing.
