The Norwegian Public Roads Administration has conducted a record number of theory exams this summer.
However, as many as 37% of the candidates failed the exams.
A total of 68,342 people took the theory exam in June, July, and August, an increase of 43% from the same period last year, according to the figures presented by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration on Friday.
But many were poorly prepared, as 25,365 candidates failed the exam.
“With a failure rate of 37%, it is clear that many take the theory test too lightly.
Furthermore, many take the theory test before they are ready, just to check their knowledge,” department director Frode Børstad in the Norwegian Public Roads Administration noted in a press release in September.
