The UK’s BEST drivers in Britain are Volvo drivers, with an overall score of 8.15/10.
Ford drivers in Central England are the best drivers, with almost 14% of voters saying so.
In Northern Ireland, the best drivers, according to the public, are those driving an Audi, winning 18.20% of overall votes.
Van drivers have been slated as the worst on UK roads.
In a poll for Moneybarn they achieved an overall score of 0.56/10!
Almost 19% of survey respondents said those in vans are the worst drivers, the least considerate and the rudest on the road (17.90%).
White van drivers, in particular, have built up quite a reputation, with many tradespeople being branded with the ‘White Van Man’ name over the years.
The public’s opinion has changed since 2021, where van drivers were previously not the worst, but instead placed third behind BMW drivers and second-placed Audi, seeing them move up two places in the rankings.
In second place as the worst drivers in the UK are Land Rover drivers, scoring 2.22/10. Land Rover drivers were identified as the worst by just 5.80% of our respondents, but scored poorly for their patience (1.70%) and being considerate (2.40%).
In 2018, insurance figures revealed that Land Rover owners were the worst drivers in Britain. According to the data, more than one in ten owners made an at-fault claim in the five years prior, significantly more than other manufacturers!
In third place as one of the worst drivers in Britain is BMW drivers, with a score of 2.59/10. Almost 16% of people in our survey said that BMW drivers are the worst, but they scored even higher for their rudeness (23.60%). The saying goes that BMWs don’t come with indicators, which highlights why the public seems to have such a strong opinion on Beemer owners.
Compared to our findings in 2021, BMW drivers seem to have slightly improved their reputation, as our previous survey had dubbed BMW drivers as the worst in the UK at the time (2021).
