How good are you as a driver?

I'm trying to check the theory of a friend. He argues that everybody thinks he is an "above average driver"... ;)

Thanks in advance for any responses. Please, try to be truthful.

It's not what your girlfriend/wife/friends say, it's not how many times you've crashed: it's what you think about yourself.

If you want to know my opinion, I believe that 90% of the people think they're above average, while I can attest, after a long vacation road trip, that in fact, approximately 95% of the people is under average...

I pride myself on my driving. I agree that there are by far more bad drivers than there are average or good.
You appreciate British drivers as a whole though as soon as you've driven abroad. I've done Italy, Turkey and Cyprus with work and those drivers are REALLY bad!

I would say I am an average driver, like most other people on the road.

Haha italy. Taxi drivers think they are racing the streets

I'm a normal average driver tbh. Can't say I'm good , neither bad.

ive said average,i do a large amount of miles a week in the van (BT Engineer) and would say that the majority of my driving is pretty decent,but on a friday evening getting home i do pick up a bit of white van man syndrome or some whopping parking manoveres during the day to get finished up quickly,in my own motor though im king of the road,best driver on the planet

I'd say I was average, been driving over 30 yrs now and 3 accidents, only 1 was my fault.
I'm a driving instructor, so I've had plenty of driver training. Above average drivers, I would say would have to of had at least police driver training or that sort of level.
Tiff needell is a good example of a above average driver.

Can't answer because if I'm average my mates are below average
If I'm below average they shouldn't be driving.
Lol

Quicker lap times in the same car proves this
