A quarter of the worst drivers in the country took their tests at Heckmondwike, the Driving Standards Agency has revealed.

Figures released by the agency show since 2004, five female drivers made 158 attempts at the practical driving test at Heckmondwike.

One learner took 34 attempts. Two learners took 32 tests each, while another two took 30.

But the figures do not show whether the learners have yet passed their tests.
