About This Quiz

We know that you think you are an excellent driver but are you really? We have all been in that situation where you get in the passenger seat, and within seconds of the driver pulling out into the road, you feel like you are literally going to die. 

Maybe they are going way too fast and swerving in and out of traffic, or they are tailgating someone or running red lights and basically driving like a total lunatic. Or they could be the other kind of driver, the one that goes totally slow and doesn't pay attention to what is going on and actually looks at you when they are talking to you while they are driving. I mean, let's face it; a lot of drivers are totally awful.

But not you though, right? You are one of the very best drivers out of all the people that you know; there is no reason at all for you to be worried about anyone thinking anything different. You know the rules of the road, you have cat-like reflexes, you always roll with the flow of traffic. You're an awesome driver. Right? Well, let's see. Maybe you should take this quiz and find out.
