Reports that the Queen has agreed to give up driving on public roads have been described as "wide of the mark", by sources.

The Queen has reportedly agreed to stop driving on public roads following the advice of her security team after Prince Philip's vehicle crash earlier this year.

Queen Elizabeth, who will be 93 next month, is the only person in the United Kingdom who is allowed to drive on roads without a licence.

She has chose to relinquish her right to drive on private roads, though she'll still be able to get behind the wheel on private grounds at her various palaces, homes and estates.

The 92-year-old is known to enjoy driving and has a fleet of cars, which includes Jaguars, Land Rovers and Range Rovers.

Prince Philip's crash in January, though, when he rolled his Land Rover after hitting another auto, has made her think twice about driving herself.

Prince Philip crashed when he hit a Kia on January 17, this year as he pulled out from a side road on to the A149.

Her Majesty does have to wear a seatbelt by law but she is immune from prosecution if she is caught not wearing one.

Following the crash questions were raised about whether or not the Duke should still be allowed behind the wheel, and he surrendered his drivers license just weeks after the crash. There has also been speculation over the royals not wearing seatbelts while driving on roads.
