1/5 of Arizona Drivers Would Fail Exam
A national survey says that more than one fifth of Arizonans who have driver’s licenses would not be able to pass a written exam today. Nationally, 20% of Americans with licenses can’t pass the test. In Arizona the number is close to 23%.
A news relaese about the GMAC Insurance National Drivers Test says that the number of drivers with knowledge of basic road rules is decreasing.
Idaho and Wisconsin drivers tied for first in the nation with an average test score of over 80%. The Arizona average score was 76.5%.
Respondents continue to have trouble with questions about yellow lights and safe following distance. Almost everybody knows what a solid line means.
You can take the test yourself online to see how you compare with other drivers. Go to www.gmacinsurance.com.
