PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — If you’re one of the 31 million Americans road-tripping this weekend, chances are you’ll come across a driver — or two — that doesn’t seem to know the rules of the road.

But are you really as smart a driver as you think you are?

According to GMAC insurance, 37 million Americans would fail a driver’s test if they had to take it again. That’s one out of every five drivers.

The average score for Pennsylvania drivers is 77 percent with 19 percent failing their driver’s test. That ranks Pennsylvania 26th nationwide – smack dab in the middle.

The average score for Pittsburgh drivers is 73 percent with 31 percent failing their test.

Kansas has the best drivers — only 8 percent failed their test while the worst drivers are in Washington DC where 34 percent failed.
