Townsville P Platers are below the Queensland average when it comes to succeeding in their practical P-Plate test. 

The Queensland average is a 65% success rate, while in Townsville only 62% of P-Plate hopefuls are successful on their first attempt. 

Meanwhile in other parts of the north, teens are a little better at blitzing their P-Plate practical driving test:

  • Hinchinbrook: 78%
  • Burdekin: 74% 
  • Charters Towers: 73%

5 Star Driver Education have shared their tips for ensuring our teens have a better chance at being successful on their first attempt. 

  • Avoid getting stressed out 
  • Keep instructions simple
  • Make sufficient time for practice 
  • Start with the basics
