Most men are quite happy to be driven by their female partners but their presence in the passenger seat can often unnerve women, an Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) survey showed.
Five per cent of men are sometimes not relaxed or never relax when their woman is behind the wheel. But if women are driving a male partner, 15 per cent are sometimes not relaxed and about 8 per cent are never relaxed.
The survey of 520 male drivers and 480 women also revealed that almost twice as many men than women say they are confident drivers. When partners drive somewhere together, men are four times more likely to take the wheel.
