This study seeks to define a program of driver education, stressing quality and economy, which can be offered to as many secondary school age beginning drivers as possible. To accomplish this goal, three basic steps were taken. A survey of the status of driver education was completed addressing the general areas of effectiveness, population trends, motivation and needs, teacher qualifications, goals and course description. This state of the art summary formed the basis of a definition of the problem facing driver education in New York State. The third step involved identification and investigation of possible solutions to the problem and alternatives to the present system of providing the course.
