Do you? Your SO? Or do you take turns?
DH always drive since I can't...

DH. I offer but he insists on driving. I'm not a bad driver, I swear!

Dh drives the highways, while I drive going in and out of the cities.

If its a long drive (as in over 4 hours) we will split but generally DH drives because (1) he says he gets carsick when he's the passenger and (2) I can keep DS company in the back.

DH really likes driving. I'm meh about it. He puts on his podcasts, which I've warmed up to over the years. Still, I'd much rather listen to music. We have a deal, though, if the particular podcast is truly annoying me, we'll switch to satellite radio. I don't play that card very often.

It's like 75/25 him/me. I have the car all week and he commutes on his bike so he likes the chance to drive.

Always DH. I offer but he never says yes. Unless he is coming off night shift and needs to sleep!

We used to split it but now with the baby...I need to be able to soothe/entertain her in the backseat so it's all DH. He drove us 13 hours to TN yesterday!

Almost always DH, I'm not a fan of driving or at least driving in areas I'm not as familiar with

Almost always DH but we'll take turns on long trips. He still does the majority. I don't like driving that much

️DH starts off and I'll drive if he needs a break. He can drive much longer than I can.

DH always drives. I used to drive SO much, so now I don't mind not doing it!

It's about 50/50. I might drive a TINY bit more, only because driving feels like a "break" for me since I don't have to be the one doling out snacks, giving pacifiers, handling the bickering, disciplining, turning on "princess music," etc.....

We split but he prefers to drive. He is not as good at handling the kids in the car; snacks complaints; fights. I take over when he is sleepy or needs a break. He is usually the most patient man I know but in the car the constant nagging drives him nuts.

We take turns. This year DH will probably drive more, so I can sleep.

Always my husband. He likes it and I don't. I like to look on my phone or I'm on kid entertaining duty. He's a much better driver anyway.

@regberadaisy: exactly the same for us. There is no license in my wallet

DH mostly. Sometimes we take turns, but DH doesn't like my driving and I'd rather sleep anyway.

In Europe, always DH. In the US, 80% DH, 20% me.

Usually T drives. I drove 10 hours to PA once, but usually he only relinquishes control of the wheel if he is feeling bad.

Usually split for the longer drives. I don't mind driving because I can't often sleep in the passenger seat & prefer driving to sitting in the front seat for hours!

Always DH. He wont let me drive if he's in the car - he says being a passenger makes him nervous. Even if it's a long journey and he is clearly exhausted, he never takes me up on my offer to drive some of the way.

DH drives more often, but on long trips we take turns. We both enjoy driving.

Me - I hate being a passenger on long car trips and DH doesn't like driving.
