Pre-Driver Education Research

5 February 2014

Many readers are involved in pre-driver education programmes and often claim them to have a lasting effect on attitude. However Section 3 of TRL's report published last year (Novice drivers - evidence review and evaluation) shows that although provision of pre-driver education and training is widespread, evidence of effectiveness is absent.

It is recommended that those planning pre-driver education programmes consult the report and also refer to evidence available through the Road Safety Observatory.

We are of course keen to support innovative approaches to young driver education and training but recommend that these be based on sound research and are thoroughly evaluated. We are therefore delighted to be able to support the Young Driver Focus where these issues will be discussed with experts.
