The controlled operation and movement of a vehicle, such as automobiles, motorbikes, trucks, buses, and bicycles, is known as driving. Permission to drive on public roadways is granted subject to the fulfillment of a series of requirements, and drivers must adhere to all applicable road and traffic rules in the area they are traveling. The term “driving” has an origin that dates back to the 15th century, and it has evolved as the definition of “driving” has evolved from working animals in the 15th century to vehicles in 1888. Since the 15th century, driving skills have evolved as well, requiring physical, mental, and safety skills. This growth of driving abilities has been followed by the creation of driving legislation that concern not just the driver but also the vehicle’s driveability.

The name “driver” dates back to the 15th century and relates to the profession of driving working animals, particularly pack horses or draft horses. The etymology of the word “to drive” is “to push to move, to urge by physical force.” It was originally noted in 1889 for electric train drivers and in 1896 for a motorcar driver. Motorneer, motor-man, motor-driver, and motorist were also early options. The French prefer “conducteur,” with the English equivalent “conductor” being used “from the 1830s” not of the driver but of the person in charge of passengers and collecting fares, while German-influenced areas adopted Fahrer (used of coach-drivers in the 18th century, but shortened about 1900 from the compound Kraftwagen Fahrer), and the verbs führen, lenken, steuern “all with the meaning “steer, guide, navigate”” translating to conduire.


In August 1888, Bertha Benz, wife of Benz Patent-Motorwagen inventor Karl Benz, drove 66 miles (106 kilometers) from Mannheim to Pforzheim, Germany, and returned in the third experimental Benz motor car, which had a top speed of 10 mph (16 km/h), with her two teenage sons Richard and Eugen, but without her husband’s consent or knowledge. She had stated that she wanted to pay a visit to her mother, but that she also wanted to raise awareness for her husband’s innovation, which had previously only been given brief test drives.

F. O. Stanley and his wife Flora drove their Stanley Steamer car, sometimes known as a locomobile, to the peak of Mount Washington in New Hampshire in 1899 to gain exposure for their vehicle. The 7.6-mile (12.2-kilometer) trek took more than two hours (not including time to replenish additional water); the descent was completed by shifting into low gear and braking heavily.

Driving in traffic entails more than simply understanding how to handle the vehicle’s control systems; it also necessitates an understanding of how to apply the regulations of the road (which ensures safe and efficient sharing with other users). An effective driver also understands the fundamentals of vehicle control intuitively and can drive safely.

Although riding a bicycle or riding a mounted horse is usually referred to as riding, such operators are legally considered drivers and must follow all traffic laws. A road trip is when you travel across a long distance.
