(Quiz) Are You A Good Driver?

illustrated driving routes

Most drivers assume they’re great behind the wheel. But we’ve all seen enough speeding, swerving and just downright questionable behavior on the road to realize some people are deluding themselves.

“Public polls show that most Americans think they are above-average drivers, which technically is impossible,” says Jonathan Adkins, executive director of the Governors Highway Safety Association. “When we overestimate our skill level, we put not only ourselves, but others on the road at risk.”

You can avoid tickets and fender benders (or worse!) by honestly assessing your driving ability. If it has been a while since you’ve dusted off your driver’s ed manual, take our quiz to see if your skills are still up to par or if it’s time for a defensive driving course to sharpen your skills.

    I take pride in trying to stay up to date on all local and state traffic laws and always do my best to always obey them when I drive. Have you checked out the fines for a traffic violation of any kind?

    I was taught that the driving distance between vehicles is 1 car length for every 10 mph you are driving. The problem with this is that when you leave a space for safety purposes, someone comes along and jumps into the space. At that rate I will be getting nowhere fast.

    Good test, But I’ve been taught over 35 years of driving company vehicles, from company safety departments to Dot and everybody else you can think of that is two, three and four seconds fallowing distance plus takin in account what you driving . also DRIVE IN THE RIGHT LANE PASS IN THE LEFT LANE PERIOD. There are states with laws that say so and signs that say so.
