A FEASIBILITY STUDY USING DRIVER LICENSING TO PROMOTE LITERACY. FINAL REPORT

This report describes a project to examine the feasibility of using the driver licensing process as a means of identifying and referring nonreaders to free literacy programs in their communities. This objective was accomplished through three interrelated activities; (1) an analysis of driver records to examine differences in performance attributable to literacy status; (2) the development and pilot testing of a literacy referral program at four sites in southeastern North Carolina; and (3) a workshop for literacy experts and state government representatives to discuss two proposals for promoting literacy through the driver licensing process.
