ELEMENTS OF GRADUATED LICENSING

The purpose of this paper is to delineate the functions that the various elements of graduated licensing are expected to serve. While graduated license systems may vary in the number of levels according to which licensing is "graduated", most involve three levels: Learner's permit, Intermediate license, and Full license. Graduated licensing can be expected to reduce the likelihood and severity of motor vehicle accidents among new drivers three ways: by reducing exposure to the risks that lead to accidents, by improving proficiency so that drivers can better cope with the risks to which they are exposed, and by enhancing motivation to avoid risk.
