A RELUCTANT driver has passed his test without any faults at all.
David Andrassy is the fourth customer of BSM on John William Street, Huddersfield, to achieve a perfect pass this year.
But the 49-year-old Marsden man will be sticking to the train most of the time.
David, who runs his own design company in Huddersfield, said: “I’ve spent my life getting buses and trains and I still think public transport is a better idea.
“I will continue to commute to Huddersfield and visit clients in Manchester by train.
“I only learned to drive because my wife was having to do all the ferrying for our four kids.”
David passed the exam without a single fault.
He said: “I thought it was going well, but I’m a perfectionist, so I was thinking of things that I might have done slightly wrong.”
David had been learning with BSM instructor Emma Goldsworthy for 18 months.
He said: “She was very patient with me and she even came along during the test to offer moral support.”
For BSM, David’s success caps an extraordinary few months.
Brighouse man Damien Pearson passed without faults on March 20 and Nigel Brook also achieved a perfect pass in Halifax on March 23.
On June 14 Shepley teenager Vanessa Brook also passed faultlessly.
Only 0.41% of the 1.9m people who take the test each year pass without fault.
BSM branch manager Nicky Gray said: “It’s very unusual to get so many perfect tests.
“I’ve worked for the company for 14 years and in all that time I can only remember one other clean sheet before this year.”
She added that this was more remarkable as the test had become more difficult.
Nicky said: “It’s harder than it was when I passed my test 14 years ago. It’s about 38 minutes long now rather than 28 and there are more cars.’’
