Thousands of motorists in the UK fail their driving test before even getting into the car, new research has revealed.
According to the data more than 2,800 people have failed to read a number plate 20m (65ft) away during their driving test.
This is a legal requirement of all drivers and can see them instantly fail the practical examination before even getting into the car.
The data, which was obtained by Feel Good Contacts through a Freedom of Information (FOI) request to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), reveals that 2,812 hopeful drivers committed an ‘eyesight serious fault’ between 2013 and 2017.
