An unnamed 28-year-old, from London, has set a new record after flunking the car theory test 107 times.

The test includes a 57-minute multiple choice exam, with a pass mark of 43 out of 50, and a hazard perception test with a pass mark of 44 out of 75,

According to the Daily Mail, once both parts of the theory have been passed, there's still the practical to overcome.

One determined 40-year-old logged a record number of practical driving tests, passing on his 37th attempt, the report said.

The unnamed man, from Stoke-on-Trent, spent at least 2,294 pounds trying to pass, which could have paid for a reasonable second-hand car, it added.

An AA Driving School spokesman said that 'this was an unusually high number of test attempts, but it is important to remember that everyone learns at their own pace. Their determination to pass highlights how important learning to drive is to most people, the report added. (ANI)
