About This Quiz

Your first car is a big deal in life. A lot is going on when it comes to a vehicle that people take for granted. First, there's the financial responsibility you need to worry about. You've got the initial cost of a car, plus the insurance. Then you need to gas up regularly, not to mention regular maintenance and those random emergencies. You never know when you might get a flat! But even before the costs, there's the whole process of learning to drive, understanding the laws, and just being comfortable behind the wheel. You see how crazy the roads can be out there; you don't want any part of that until you're ready, right?

What it means to be ready for a car is different from person to person. You need to be comfortable with every aspect of driving and car ownership. You need to know you can drive offensively in a pinch or defensively as well. You need to be able to read those gauges and lights on your dash and know when it's time to hit up the garage. You need to be a driver in every sense of the word. So are you ready? Shift into gear, and let's take the quiz!
