GMAC Survey Finds 1 in 5 Drivers Unfit for the Road

Comstock/Thinkstock(WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.) -- A new survey by the GMAC National Drivers Test shows that almost one in five drivers in the U.S. should not be driving, according to a GMAC Insurance press release.

The survey found that nearly 37 million drivers do not meet the criteria to earn a drivers license. GMAC issued a 20-question, multiple choice test of common questions on state driving exams.

The average score was actually two percentage points higher than last year, at 77.9 percent. Test examiners found that men performed better than women, and older drivers (aged 60 to 65) beat younger drivers at road knowledge

Over 5,000 drivers between the ages of 16 and 65 participated in the test.
