L'EDUCATION DES JEUNES MOTOCYCLISTES AU QUEBEC

In the province of Quebec, Canada, safety training for young motorcyclists takes place in two stages. The first stage covers the learning of road safety as an official part of the school curriculum, which although not specifically for motorcycle riders, the program aims to make pupils as future drivers or riders safe on the roads. For motorcyclists, since 1985, applicants for a Quebec drivers licence must take a training course offered by an approved driving school. The course offers theory and practice which takes place on a closed track, and forms the second stage of training. A government committee is currently examining methods to improve motorcycling safety, and has recommended that more emphasis should be placed on training on the public roads, and further investigation into motorcycle rider psychology. The german title of this paper is 'Sicherheitstraining fuer junge motorradfahrer'. For the covering abstract of some of the papers see IRRD 837529. (Author/TRRL)
