Driver behaviour quiz: What kind of driver are you?

There are many kinds of drivers on our roads some are good and some are not so good. You might not know it but you show your driver behaviour all the time in the decisions that you make on the road.

Mostly As: Nervous Nelly


You are the kind of driver that errs on the side of caution and we applaud you for that. But sometimes this means that your driving can become erratic, as you doubt yourself and change your mind during the course of your actions. Whoa Nelly, take a breath and chill out.


Mostly Bs: Steve the Speedster


Oh dear. You are the kind of driver that other drivers are nervous about. Please try and be mindful of your driver behaviour by going slower and taking a moment to think before making movements on the road.


Mostly Cs: Sensible Sally


You are the ideal driver. You always follow the rules of the road, use patience and caution.


Mostly Ds: Pete the Slowpoke

You might think that you are being safe but did you know that more accidents are caused by drivers going under the speed limit than those exceeding it? Other drivers also might get annoyed that your lack of speed is holding them up, so try and pick it up a bit Pete.
