The driving test is 75 years old on the 1st of June 2010.
It was on the 1st of June 1935 that compulsory driver testing was first introduced in the UK, previous to that tests were conducted on a voluntary basis.
Over the years, the test has undergone many changes, getting longer and more difficult, a seperate theory test was introduced in 1997. The DSA is scheduled to introduce independent driving on the test in october 2010.
