I was just thinking about this question today. :idea:
What percentage of the women in the cities of the Ukraine (Kiev) have drivers license? :?: I did keep in mind that income to own a car, could determine ownership of a driver's license. Then again, I am just assuming all this since I really don't know much about the Ukraine lifestyle today. :oops:

As a percentage of the overall population few men own cars and much fewer women own cars. But, with 46 million people in the Ukraine and almost 3 million in Kiev even a small percentage adds up. The roads in Kiev were designed in Soviet days never intending to have automobile traffic. Consequently, today the roads are packed with traffic jams almost daily.

I know few Ukrainians who own cars. Only one of my employees has a car and it is really half a car and half a truck. It only has two seats and he uses it to hall construction material for his side business.

There are some businesswomen who do own cars but the majority of women you will see driving cars here are the girlfriends of wealthy Ukrainians.

I don't own a car here and I don't have any intentions to purchase a car. They are dramatically more expensive than they are in the United States and it would actually be LESS convenient for me to have a car. Taxis are readily available and cheap in Kiev has a great metro system.

Getting a driver's license in the Ukraine is quite an involved process and will cost several hundred dollars.
