After 33 attempts, 14 instructors and 25 years learner driver FINALLY passes his driving test

Christian Whiteley-Mason has been left more than £10,000 out of pocket to complete his dream of learning to drive.

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try again.

Christian Whiteley-Mason has taken 33 attempts, 14 different instructors, 85 lessons and left him over £10,000 out of pocket over a staggering 25 years to finally pass his driving test.

“I can’t believe I’ve actually finally passed after all these years,” said the care home manager. “I’m still in shock!”

Christian, 42, from Barnsley, South Yorkshire, first took his test in 1992 in the days before the driving theory test was introduced but quickly racked up a succession of test fails.

Even his husband Darren, thought he’d never pass, joking with him ‘You’re an accident waiting to happen.’
