'Driving hopefuls may want to avoid taking a test in Kilkenny' according to new study

Kilkenny was the county with the lowest driving test pass rate in the nation last year, according to a Chill Insurance study.

Kilkenny recorded a 39.55% pass rate in 2021, much lower than even the second-lowest county, Dublin (45.82%).

“Driving hopefuls may want to avoid taking a test in Kilkenny as the county had the lowest pass rate in Ireland of just under 40%,” the study said.

The study also revealed that December was the least lucky month of the year to have a test booked in 2021.

Neighbours Carlow recorded the third-lowest success rate in the country at 49.40%.
