Woman spends £500 trying to pass driving theory test 24 times

Woman spends £500 trying to pass driving theory test 24 times

She finally did it!

Every driver will remember studying road signs when preparing for their driving theory test. The same can be said for one woman who spent half a grand trying to pass hers a whopping 24 times.

Mia Woodhall spent a mini fortune trying to get on the road for her practical test and she took to TikTok to share her story.

She took the test 24 times before passing it, and she ended up spending £552 in total. Well, you know what they say, 24th time's a charm!

"It took me 24 times to get my theory test," she wrote in the video's caption.

But in an uplifting twist of fate, she revealed she passed her practical test the first time.

One shocked TikTok user commented: "That has to be a world record."

"Terrible!" Mia replied.

A confused TikTok commenter asked how she managed to pass the 'hardest' part of the driving test the first time. They said: "How do u pass practical first time tho that’s the hardest?

Mia had an answer, writing: "cus i could drive i just am no good at tests etc."

Mia spent £500 trying to pass her theory test.

Another person asked the self-described blogger how she managed to fail the theory test because it's 'easy'.

"Just never learned it, just kept winging it, booked like every 3 days," she replied.

Mia isn't the only one who finally got onto the road after countless setbacks. Reality TV star Scarlett Moffatt proudly ditched her 'L' plates for a big shiny 'P' plate when she passed earlier this year.

The former Gogglebox star, 32, attempted her practical test 13 times before getting her licence back in September.

If Mia hadn't passed her test when she did, she could have taken part in Scarlett's upcoming BBC reality show about learner drivers struggling to become fully fledged legal road users.

Scarlett Moffatt passed her test after several attempts back in September.

Moffatt's new show sees the I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! winner open the doors to her very own driving school in in an attempt to help the those who are struggling to pass their driving tests as a result of missing out on driving lessons with professional instructors due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the huge backlog it caused.

Each of the learner drivers on the show will attend Scarlett's driving school with the family member or friend who has to become an amateur driving instructor.

The long-suffering learner driver is then given an intensive five-day crash course by some of the UK’s top professional driving instructors.

No airdate has been announced for Scarlett's new show just yet.
