How the study confirmed that women are better drivers than men
If you were to ask the factors they looked at, you’ll be shocked. The study took and looked at data from c***e, driving test statistics, insurance, and road records. These are just what the research needs in proving that women are better drivers than men – literally!
In the study and research done by Confused, a comparison website, it has revealed that although women take longer time learning how to drive, they commit fewer motoring offences.
Not just that, they’re less likely to be involved in road problems such as an accident. This then translates to insurers costing less when women make the claims.

Men in terms of driving
In addition to that study, they’ve also found that men were almost four (4) times more likely to commit motoring offences than women. Which means that out of ten (10) men and ten (10) women, only one (1) woman would commit an offence; then four (4) men would.
In fact, the number of men who commit or be involved in accidents are rampant. They take over the board when you look at the records of who had the most offences was.

To add to that, it was found that 79 percent of the 539,000 people who were convicted of not abiding by the road rules and regulations in England and in Wales were men.
This means that only 21 percent was accounted to by females, and it could just be because they’re not driving as much as men!
Summary of the study
Now, don’t you believe that women are better drivers than men? Well, a quarter of these offences of “breaking the law” were speeding. In a woman’s world, however, it was just seven percent for the females.
Driving Under the Influence (DUI) or d***k driving also accounts men to be five (5) times more likely than women. Which means that men are more than twice likely to be on the wrong side or at fault when they’re making an insurance claim.

Here’s another fun fact to dwell on; there were 1.6 million people who took the driving test last year in England and in Wales. 55 percent of those exam takers failed – 24 percent of which were males while the remaining 31 percent were females.
Guess what, though? The 45 percent who passed were a combination of 23 percent men, and 22 percent women; not a big difference though, right?
The study also suggests that men are more likely to have extremely bad driving habits. In fact, 23 percent of male drivers confess that they do not signal when they’re switching lanes. Compare it to the 17 percent of it which were women, how bad is that?
