Find out your 'driving age' in this reaction test game

Driving reaction speed test: Do you have the reflexes of an 18 year old?

WHAT IS your real “driving age”? A new online game claims to be able to identify how old you are based on how fast your reactions are at the wheel.

The game records your reaction time within a millisecond and calculates your age by how quickly, or slowly, you react when asked to perform an emergency stop. The predictions are based on the times of 2,000 people aged 18-76.

The developers say it is eerily accurate — although the results can be skewed by factors such as how much sleep the player has had. It also revealed that, regardless of age, the reaction time of regular drivers was 10% faster than that of non-drivers.
