A CONTENT ANALYSIS OF FIVE BOOKS ON DRIVING

An analysis was made of items of instruction given in five popular books on driving, in relation to basic manoeuvres relevant to l-drivers. The analysis showed that conflicting advice was very rare, though the exclusion of items of advice in the shorter books could also possibly mislead readers. Books seemed to agree in the emphasis given to particular manoeuvres, when the numbers of items of instruction for each were compared. Some of the problems involved in choosing items for instruction are discussed, in relation to the lists obtained from these books. Ways in which more adequate lists might be used by l-drivers, or by instructors, are considered. /Author/TRRL/
