Do you think you are a good driver? Could you pass the driving test if you had to take it again?
The GMAC Insurance National Drivers Test is conducted annually to see how drivers across the country score. This test has become the benchmark for America’s driving IQ, and in some areas, we are not doing so good. Here are some interesting results from this year’s test:
Are men really better drivers? If your answer is based on driving knowledge as opposed to driving habits, then yes, men are better drivers than women. Overall test results showed males scored an average of 80.2 percent while women scored an average of 74.1 percent on this year’s test.
Be careful while driving in the northeast, because the test results indicated that scores, on average, were the lowest in the northeast driving region. What region scored the highest? The midwest.
Have respect for your elders – According to the GMAC National Drivers Test, drivers between the ages of 60-65 had the highest average test scores.
When traveling, which state should you avoid? According to the test results, stay away from New York and Washington, D.C., because 1 in 3 drivers failed the test.
