The study was undertaken to develop a model process for the provisional (graduated) licensing of young novice drivers and to incorporate that model into a work statement for a 403 demonstration project. The model provisional licensing system includes the following major countermeasures: a parent-supervised driving practice program, a program of license testing and certification geared to young novice drivers, a nighttime driving restriction (at least for young problem drivers), and a youth-oriented driver improvement program. Included in the work statement for the project are a management system for the project, an evaluation design, key references, and a model driver improvement program for young novices. In addition to serving as the major portion of a Request for Proposal for a fiscal year 1977 NHTSA demonstration project, the model itself may also serve as a guide for state officials and legislators in modifying existing licensing programs to reduce the incidence of youthful violations and accidents.
