13% of men have no car licence

MORE than one in ten British men (13 per cent) do not have a driving licence. And a third of those who do not drive blame the cost for not getting behind the wheel, according to a new survey.

The survey – by the insurance company Ibuyeco – has found that two in ten men feel under pressure to drive as it was "the done thing", with 44 per cent of women saying they always expected a man to have a licence.
