THE LEARNER DRIVER QUESTIONNAIRE - IDENTIFYING ATTITUDE PROBLEMS IN POTENTIAL DRIVERS AND PROVIDING REMEDIAL ADVICE

This paper describes the development, over three years, of the Learner Driver Questionnaire (LDQ) in Great Britain which is designed to identify driver attributes known to be related to the accident likelihood of an individual. The questionnaire was based partly upon research carried out on behalf of the AA Foundation for Road Safety Research. This research explored the factors that determine young peoples' attitudes towards driving and identified those that explained the differences evident in their driving behavior. Development of the LDQ was aided by earlier research into a "Young Drivers' Attitude Scale" by the American Automobile Association Foundation for Traffic Safety in the U.S.
