    Hi, just a quick question,
    would it be worth mentioning a driving/theory success in a personal statement?
    Have you/do you know anyone that has done this in the past?
    thanks in advance

    passing a driving theory test is something that all people that drive have to take part in. likelihood is it won't have any relevance to the course you're applying for, so leave it out else it might be a bit embarrassing to read!

    If it was particularly relevant, you might want to include it. You might have an interesting anecdote about how you were having a driving lesson when you realised what course you wanted to study at uni, or similar. But otherwise, leave it out.

    Unless your course is on instructing driving and you managed to actually ace both your practical and theory tests, then I'd leave it out.
