...three people: two men and a woman. niether of them knew how to drive.


Does that mean that neither of the men knew how to drive, or none of the three did?

Maybe, the men had no arms and thus could not drive a car?

Maybe the tires were for a motorcycle and the woman knew how to ride one

Maybe the "men" were children

This looks like another one of those questions where you should be able to ask yes/no questions to get to "the answer", otherwise, there are many possibilities.

The only thing that is helpful in this is the tire tracks.....since no one knows how to drive, then the woman had to have been dropped off. The tracks lead up to the house had to have been from mud on the tires i'm guessing (not rubber) which means the woman had to have gotten mud on her shoes when she got out of the car whenever she had committed the robbery.

When you say she couldn't drive do you mean she couldn't physicaly or she didn't have a license
If it was something like the licenese maybe she was arrested for driving when she shouldn't have.
The question never states she was arrested for robbing the bank

"She confessed" was the first thing that came to my mind.

Slightly less obviously...the men were the owners of the house, and the woman was a stranger?
