Almost one-in-five Brits want the the legal driving age raised to 21.
This is according to the Admiral Survey of British Motorists 2010.
The majority of the 2100 motorists surveyed believe the legal driving age should be raised from 17, with 19 per cent saying 21 should be the new limit.
The survey also found the number of motorists who are in favour of lowering all residential speed limits to 20mph has increased to 38 per cent from 30 per cent in 2009.
Almost six in 10 think the motorway speed limit should be increased to 80mph, but only 16 per cent think more speed cameras should be installed.
One-in-five motorists saying they would use toll roads if they were quicker and a quarter think more towns and cities should consider congestion charging.
