Novice drivers are considered to be at particular risk of having accident. This paper describes the results from a study which examined whether it was possible to use assessments made while individuals are learning to drive to predict accident risk once t have passed their test. Questionnaires about driving performance attitude were completed by pupils and instructors during driver training. Pupils who passsed their test were asked to fill in a further questionnaire after 6 months. An anaysis of the results provides evidence that novice drivers' risk can be predicted. Nov drivers were aware that they would be unsafe and it is suggested this could form the basis for educational intervention. For the covering abstract see IRRD 873938.
