That’s not the right answer?

If you were to take a written driver’s examination today, how would you fare?   Inspired by low scores experienced drivers had on common practice questions, LeaseTrader.com polled other American drivers to get a better picture.   As you might expect, the results were different between men and women, as one gender had a higher percentage of correct answers on a sample test.   Through LeaseTrader.com, 500 men and women - each with at least five years of driving experience - took turns answering the same 10 sample questions found on written driving exams across the country.   Those with the most driving experience, more than 20 years, scored nearly 18 percent lower than younger drivers.   Men scored an average of 59 percent answers correct, while women answered just 46 percent correct.   Men had the most difficult time answering a question addressing the procedure for approaching a stopped school bus on the other side of a divided highway. While most men said you should watch for children and be ready to stop, the correct answer is: stop and wait until flashing red lights are off.   Women had the most difficult time with a question addressing the appropriate speed limit on primary and secondary state and federal highways. While most women said the speed limit is 65 mph, the correct answer is: 55 mph.   The more driving experience people had, the worse their scores on the questions.   Drivers of more than 20 years scored an average of 46 percent correct; between 10-20 years experience scored 58 percent correct; and between 5-10 years 64 percent correct.   Not one person scored every question correct, and more than three quarters of the entire exam population answered four or more questions incorrectly - thus a failing grade.   How would you do on?   Go online to your state’s department of motor vehicles, take a practice test and see how you score.   Good luck.
