TRIAL INTRODUCTION OF A RETRAINING AND ADVISORY MODEL FOR NEWLY QUALIFIED DRIVERS

VERSUCHSWEISE EINFUEHRUNG EINES NACHSCHULUNGS- UND BERATUNGSMODELLS FUER FAHRANFAENGER

THE RESULTS OF AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE ACCIDENT PRONENESS OF RECENTLY QUALIFIED DRIVERS REQUIRE A NEW ORIENTATION FOR DRIVING SCHOOLS AND TESTS: ON THE ONE HAND THE OBJECTIVE-ORIENTATED ACTIVITY OF ROAD TRAFFIC RELATED TO THE EXPERIENCE OF THE NEWLY QUALIFIED DRIVER AND ON THE OTHER HAND EMPHASIS ON THE AGE-RELATED TYPICAL STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES IN PLACE OF THE OVER-EMPHASIS ON VEHICLE TECHNICALITIES AND HIGHWAY LAW. THE PROJECT GROUP, HOWEVER, MOVED AWAY FROM THE IDEA OF CARRYING OUT RETRAINING AS AN ISOLATED MEASURE. THEY SUBMITTED SUGGESTIONS FOR INCLUSION IN A PACKAGE OF MEASURES WHICH INCLUDED THE INTEGRATED ROAD EDUCATION IN PRE-SCHOOLS AND SCHOOLS, DRIVER TRAINING AND TESTING, BEGINNER-RELATED TRAFFIC REGULATION MEASURES, THE RE-TRAINING OF THOSE WHO HAD BECOME BAD DRIVERS AND LEGAL CLARIFICATION MEASURES. THE MOST IMPORTANT AIMS FOR THE RE-TRAINING OF YOUNG DRIVERS AS CONCEIVED BY THE PROJECT GROUP ARE: TO MAKE AWARE THE GREATER RISKS TO WHICH BEGINNER DRIVERS ARE PRONE; IMPROVEMENT OF THEIR PROTECTION RELATIVE TO OTHER TRAFFIC; REDUCTION OF THEIR READINESS TO TAKE RISKS; REDUCTION OF THEIR TECHNICAL AND LEGAL KNOWLEDGE; EMPHASIS OF THE SOCIAL ATTITUDE IN TRAFFIC; EXPLANATION OF THE INDIVIDUAL- AND GROUP-SPECIFIC FAULTY BEHAVIOUR PATTERNS. THE FIRST RESULTS OF THE FUNCTION CAPACITY OF THE COMPLETE MODEL ARE AWAITED IN 1979.
