Women need more driving lessons than men to pass test

Women take longer to pass their driving test than men, according to new statistics from confused.com.

Researchers found girls need an average of 21 lessons before they pass, compared with 17 for men.

The study also showed that women are more likely to suffer from nerves. But, despite the old pub jokes about girls showing a bit of thigh to get a pass, it's actually MEN who are more likely to befriend or flirt with their examiner. Nearly a quarter of blokes admitted trying to use their charm to get a pass.
