Happy motoring in Whitby

WHITBY is one of the best places in the country to learn to drive.

According to figures released by the Department for Transport Whitby makes the list of 25 places with the lowest failure rate.

Last year 354 people in Whitby took their driving test for the first time and only 39.8 per cent failed.

That is compared to the worst place in the country - Wanstead in east London where out of 4826 drivers taking their tests over 71 per cent failed.
