Builders can raise the roof and celebrate as they take second place and move up the rankings from third last year. Butchers and Farmers also appear to have fewer marks on their records, as they lead the list as some of Britain’s best drivers.

Commenting on this year’s findings, Andy James, UK CEO at 1ST CENTRAL, said: “Whether you’re a Painter or a Financial Analyst, it’s important to have the right protection in place so that you can drive safely on the road.

At 1ST CENTRAL we provide consumers with a simple way to ensure that everyone has the right cover for themselves, as well as their family and friends, so that we can all get to work with peace of mind.”
