INDIVIDUAL DRIVING EDUCATION COMPUTERIZED VIDEO DISC PROGRAM (C.V.D.P.) . PROCEEDINGS INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON NEW WAYS AND MEANS FOR IMPROVED SAFETY, TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, FEBRUARY 20-23, 1989

The Israeli transportation system is based mainly upon motor vehicle transportation, while railways are used mostly for transportation of chemicals, ores and fertilizers. The number of registered motor vehicles in Israel is about 920,000. The driver training situation today is as follows. The method of teaching drivers defensive driving is mainly by using lectures and standard equipment, but: (a) the instructor, is not always satisfactory; (b) the method of training and time spent is always the same, without taking the students differences in culture, language and personality into account; (c) using standard training system and equipment (lectures, blackboards, posters,etc.), leads to bored students; (d) the instructor has no indication what the student has learnt, or whether the course caused any change of attitude. The advantages of the computerized program are as follows. The most advanced training method is achieved using the c.v.d.p. (computerised video disc program) because: (a) it provides the best training method because it is programmed and processed by professionals in traffic safety education; (b) the student can proceed at his/her own pace considering his/her knowledge, attitude, language and progress. By the end of the course, the student will be able to show proficiency of the material studied; (c) the sophisticated and varied program maintains an alert and interested student! (d) a computerized follow-up and detailed data is available for the use of instructors and program management; and (e) the c.v.d.p. Is flexible and capable of being updated with new state laws and ideas for training. (TRRL)
