Regtransfers Private Reg Plates company went out into the digital world and found the most attractive driving moves and biggest icks! They even ran a Facebook poll with the hope to find out exactly what women find the most attractive things men do while driving. Here are the results.

Attraction is one thing. However, you might have heard the term “ick” floating around lately. An ick simply put is the opposite of attraction, let’s just say something that kind of puts you off. That being said, we thought it wouldn’t be fair to not add a few driving icks to our list for good measure. Hopefully, after reading this article, you’re not sitting there thinking “damn I do that”.

And well if you are, it’s never too late to try and act a little bit sexier (hopefully).

The One-Handed Steering Wheel Grip

One of the most frequently praised and impressive driving behaviours is the one-handed steering wheel grip. When a man expertly manoeuvres his vehicle with one hand casually resting on the steering wheel, it exudes a sense of ease, confidence, and control – especially when they do little tappy taps with their hands along to the music. 

Gentle Touches

Some women find it attractive when a man places his hand gently on his partner’s thigh while driving, as it signifies a sense of closeness, comfort, and intimacy. This is our poll winner! 65% of women voted for this sensual gesture! Who doesn’t love subtle touches as a passenger princess?

Reverse Parking in Style

Reverse parking can be a challenging task for many drivers, but it seems that TikTok users find it particularly attractive when men showcase their parking prowess. The act of skilfully manoeuvring a vehicle into a tight spot with confidence and precision is seen as desirable for most women. Many women have mentioned how they find it appealing when a man reverse parks with their arm resting behind the passenger seat, looking out the rear window while they make their manoeuvre.

Pro Parallel Parking

Parallel parking is every driver’s fear! When a man flawlessly parallel parks, it’s a display of his mastery over the wheel and the road. Everyone struggles with parallel parking, so when you see a man do it effortlessly, it’s considered quite impressive!

Slick Gear Change

Whether he’s going up a gear, or down, a smooth gear change is an attractive trait for the manual car man. No crunching or grinding, just perfectly timed gear changes. 

Biggest Driving Icks


You guessed it. Stalling. We’ve all done it but let’s face it, stalling is embarrassing for everyone! So if you’re in a car with a guy and he keeps stalling, maybe you drive next time. And the truth is, stalling multiple times in a row is unforgivable.

Severe Road Rage

Nothing is worse than a guy with a bad temper when it comes to driving. You just want to sink low in your seat to avoid the cringe! Keep your hands on the wheel and the shouting to a minimum – Thank you!

Taste in Music

Now many people bond over a common interest in music. Is it really make or break? Just imagine, you’re out for a long drive with your partner and you’re about to get the tunes going. They then put on their playlist and it is so awful you can’t bear it! Do you sit there in agony during the whole drive looking over whilst they’re having the best time, or do you simply turn the music off and express your newfound headache? Damn, we wish he had good music taste, sigh.
