* Subverted in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' ''[[UpdatedRerelease Golden]]''. When the girls are studying for their motorcycle licenses, Kanji (who's too young to apply) wonders whether they're any good as drivers, as does Rise, and even the fairly intelligent Yukiko has some trouble with the material. In the end, though, they pass and are no less competent than the males.

* In ''Literature/TheGreatGatsby'', both female leads are awful drivers. [[spoiler: One is so bad that Daisy Buchanan eventually kills someone who runs out into the middle of the road]], and they both tends more to the DrivesLikeCrazy. Jordan Baker admits to being a reckless driver and doesn't care at all about other drivers. Her irresponsible driving is used as another example of her extreme selfishness.

* A ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' ''Weekend Update'' joke regarding a RealLife incident in which a man was charged with child endangerment after not only taking his 8 year old daughter to a bar, but making HER drive home because he was too drunk to do it himself. Needless to say, the poor child very rapidly got into an accident (no one was hurt, fortunately). Then-anchor Norm MacDonald promptly cracked, "This just proves what I've been saying for years. Women can't drive!"

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsons'', Jane goes in for her driver's license much to the horror of the driving instructor. When the instructor first sees Jane, he turns a dial on the "Student Driver" sign on the car that makes it read "Woman Student Driver: Beware". After Jane is forced by a bank robber to be his escape vehicle, the instructor professes concern for "that poor creature" -- not Jane, but the robber she's driving.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsons'', Jane goes in for her driver's license much to the horror of the driving instructor. The car has the standard "STUDENT DRIVER" sign flanked by a couple of barely-noticed decorative frames. When the instructor first sees Jane, he turns a dial on dial, and the "Student Driver" sign on "decorative frames" flip to make the car that makes it read "Woman Student Driver: Beware". "WOMAN STUDENT DRIVER BEWARE". After Jane is forced by a bank robber to be his escape vehicle, the instructor professes concern for "that poor creature" -- not Jane, but the robber she's driving.

* Similarly, Yukari from ''Manga/FamilyCompo'' is Yukari is a [[{{Transsexual}} transgender]] housewife who has a driver's license and hasn't been behind the wheel in fifteen years. On the one occasion when she does take the car out, she winds up driving against traffic and ''jumping a barrier'' to get onto the right side of the road.

* ''Manga/GunsmithCats'' is an aversion: the female protagonist, Rally Vincent, is an expert driver who loves powerful muscle cars like her beloved Shelby Cobra. Sure, she wrecks cars like no one's business, but that's because of the insane antics she gets into rather than her driving ability. The other exception is Riff Raff, who was on the receiving end of Bean Bandit's above diss on her driving. After slugging him in the face (where he commends her for throwing a punch that hurt more than a stun-gun), she promptly proves she's just as good as Rally.

* Subverted in ''Manga/WanganMidnight'' when Yamamoto gives a highly tuned Skyline GT-R demo car with over 600bhp to resident chick Reina Akikawa to drive, his fellow tuner Gaa-chan starts to doubt her ability and Yamamoto's judgement. Reina then proceeds to show complete mastery of the car, no surprise since she has a highly tuned GT-R of her own. [[StrawmanHasAPoint In Gaa-chan's defence]], that's a powerful enough car that ''anyone'' who was used to a regular sedan or compact car instead of a tuner could come to mischief in it very easily, regardless of gender.

* Subverted in ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' - while Yukari is the most ''dangerous'' driver on the face of the earth, no other women shown driving are depicted this way.

* The 40s-50s comedy series ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'' used this at least once when the titular character drove her own car (which was not that often since her vehicle was usually broken down & in the shop). She got rides to school from one of her students, Walter, who sometimes mentioned how many mistakes his mother made while driving.

* Studies differ, but one thing constantly seen is that men get in more accidents, but only because they drive more. Women tend to get in more accidents per mile driven (in the range of 10 percent). Young men get in more accidents than young women, and older women in more than older men.
