YOUNG DRIVER RESEARCH PROGRAM: EVALUATION OF AUSTRALIAN GRADUATED LICENSING SCHEMES

A graduated licensing scheme was one of the elements of the 10-point road safety package announced by the then Prime Minister in December 1989 as part of the Federal Government's Road Safety Initiative, for adoption by states and territories. The evaluation approach reported here comprised: (1) documentation of changes and the current position in the jurisdictions regarding regulations for novice drivers; (2) a review of studies of the effects of components of graduated licensing schemes; (3) a review of studies of community and young driver attitudes to graduated licensing; and (4) a major survey of young driver knowledge, attitudes, compliance and perceptions and social costs associated with the components of graduated licensing.
