The Covid pandemic caused a vast swathe of problems for people in the UK, with one of those being the impact on driving instructors and learners.

It has resulted in a huge backlog of people trying to book lessons as well as those trying to book a practical test.

Learners have struggled to book tests, have spent more money, and some are even forced to travel far and wide to secure a test.

The question might remain on many people’s minds of when this demand will return to normal levels.

Following extensive Freedom of Information requests to the DVSA and data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), a new report by learner driver insurers, Marmalade has shown the full scale of the backlog and how it is set to compound in the coming months.
