About This Quiz

Driving is something that most of us will have to do at one point in our lives. Sometimes it's fun, others it may not be so fun, but that's where our driving slang comes from! There's a word for almost everything. The road, other drivers, certain situations, car parts and even the cars themselves. We're willing to bet that you can even think of a few right now. So, if you're a driver, then you'll probably know a thing or two about the slang used on the road!

What's that car ahead? Could it be the infamous "beamer"?! If you know what that means, then you're ready to tackle this quiz. With some quick thinking, you'll probably be able to figure out some of these terms. Some may be expressions while others may just be quick words that you never really thought about before. After all, it's important to focus on the road when you're driving! If you know things like what a car that doesn't operate very well is called, or what another word you might use for traffic is, you're already one step ahead of the game.

So, sit back, relax and take the wheel for this driving slang quiz. It's a long way to your destination, but that's where you'll find your score!
