Largest Number of Driving Test Failures By April 1970 Mrs. Miriam
Hargrave had failed her test thirty-nine times. In the eight
preceding years she had received two hundred and twelve driving
lessons at a cost of L300. She set the new record while driving

August but eight years later she showed some of her old magic when she
was reported as saying that she still didn't like doing right-hand
