THE FUTURE OF DRIVER LICENSING: THE NEED TO GET IT ALL TOGETHER

This paper points out the need for a combined effort by researchers, motor vehicle administrators, and legislators in order to improve driver licensing. Three possible courses of action to achieve an improved future in driver licensing are offered. One possibility is for NHTSH to require that the states comply fully with the driver licensing standards it establishes. A second possibility is for NHTSA to provide guidelines and depend on the states to develop their own licensing standards. The third possibility is for the states to continue to conform to basic licensing procedures until a cost-effective system can be developed and tested.
