Speeding and drinking main reasons for losing right to drive
Around 80,000 people lost the right to drive last year – about the same as the previous year.
The main reasons are speeding and drinking.
The numbers from the Federal Roads Office show drug use and inattentive driving were also significant factors.
Rather puzzling was a steep rise in learner drivers failing the test. Up nearly 40% last year from 2018. The roads office says it has no explanation as there have not been any changes to the test in the past year.
