Learner drivers in the UK are failing their tests without even turning the engine on.

Examiners at the Blackpool Test Centre are refusing to get in some cars, claiming they’re too dirty.

One dad told the Lancashire Post that his 17-year-old daughter, who had waited months for her test, was left distraught this week when her examiner failed her for having pencil rubber filings on the carpet underneath the passenger seat.

Other reports included another L-plater being failed because of mud in the footwell, while others were failed over of a blade of grass or strands of hair in the car.

Clairsy & Lisa opened the phones… and if those examiners thought those cars were filthy, ooof, wait until they hear these stories…

Also, big cheers to listener and mechanic Haydn who sent the pic in. It’s disgusting, we love it.
