Top 10 reasons for failing a lorry test
Failing to look properly at junctions and reversing are the top reasons people failed their medium and large lorry tests during the past year (April 2018 to March 2019). The most common faults made during Category C and CE driving tests between April 2018 and March 2019 were:
Junctions - observation
Reverse - Control
Control - steering
Mirrors - change direction
Move off - safely
Response to signs - traffic lights
Junctions - turning right
Judgement - meeting
Response to signs - traffic signs
Failing to look properly at a junction is the most common serious or dangerous test fault and the largest cause of accidents in Britain. While not controlling the lorry effectively when reversing accounted for just under a quarter of serious and dangerous faults on test.
