A third of people are failing their restricted driving tests because of obvious mistakes.
VTNZ has listed the five main reasons why people fail. Forgetting to give way topped the list, accounting for 24 percent of fails.
Driving 10 kilometres over the speed limit and not stopping at stop signs were other common breaches.
Driver Testing Manager James Law says new drivers should pay attention to why people fail, so they can improve.
