In a study by GMAC Insurance, one in ten drivers would fail a state drivers test.  The GMAC Insurance National Drivers Test uses a sample of 5000 drivers nationwide between the ages of 16 and 65.  Respondents take a 20 question written test similar to a state drivers test.  There are a few highlights to the results.  Apparently, the Northwest and Great Lakes States possess the most knowledgeable drivers and the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic States are the least.  The report illustrates a few deficiencies in American driving habits and perhaps problems in driver's education.  In America, driver's education is not as involved as in other countries.  In fact, a lot of other nations impose a minimum driving age of 18, such as Germany and Japan.
