LEARNING GOALS FOR DRIVING LICENCE HOLDERS OF 25-60 YEARS OLD, WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF PERMANENT TRAFFIC EDUCATION: A FEASIBILITY STUDY BASED ON LITERATURE, DATA ANALYSIS, AND INTERVIEWS

LEERDOELEN VOOR RIJBEWIJSBEZITTERS VAN 25 TOT 60 JAAR IN HET KADER VAN PERMANENTE VERKEERSEDUCATIE: HAALBAARHEIDSSTUDIE OP BASIS VAN LITERATUUR, DATA-ANALYSE EN INTERVIEWS

In 1998, the combined Provincial Road Safety Boards in the Netherlands decided to develop a policy path for permanent traffic education for driving licence holders. In this, they distinguish between the various age groups. The provinces of Flevoland and Groningen commissioned SWOV to make a study of the feasibility of traffic education for the target group of 25-60 years old. The study consists of two parts. In the first part a study was made of where the road safety problems of the target group lie, and of which points of application there are for traffic education. This part used the literature and analysis of databases. In the second part, the design of this traffic education, especially the learning goals, was examined. It was determined which behaviour and which of its influence factors need attention for educating the target group. For the learning goals, the same structure was used as for that of the car driving licence, as formulated by the Ministry of Transport. The specific learning goals were discussed in interviews with key figures of the permanent traffic education in the Netherlands. The interviews determined the primary items for permanent traffic education of the target group. Furthermore, the interviews, together with the literature, indicated points of application for the design of a programme for permanent traffic education and the roles that the various organisations could play. Based on this, it is suggested how Provincial Road Safety Boards can stimulate and strengthen education programmes for driving licence holders.
