Taking a road trip with Grandma soon? You may want to let her drive. Chances are, she's got sharper smart road smarts than you and your fancy young brain!
A new report by CheapCarInsurance.net shows that boomers aged 60 to 69 were the most likely to pass its written driving exam, with 55 percent of the age group passing the test the company sent out. They also had the highest score of all the age groups eligible, averaging 78.1 percent. In second place? People 70 and older, with a pass rate of 50 percent
Scoring the lowest were drivers who you'd think would be the most up to speed on their driving skills, given that they got their license less than 4 years ago. But only 29.8 percent of people under 20 passed the test, with an average score of 69.2 percent. Of drivers aged 20 to 29, 39.2 percent passed the test, scoring an average of 71 percent.

3,500 people took the quiz, which Eric Snapper, project manager at CheapCarInsurance.net said was compiled based on real driver exam questions.
"After collecting nearly 500 questions from across the country, we put together about 50 of our own questions that we felt weren't necessarily state specific and applied to a broader audience," said Snapper. "The user is put through a random sample of 23 of those questions. That's about half of what a typical written test might be."
