National Transportation Safety Board Public Forum on Driver Education and Training, October 28-29, 2003. Report of Proceedings

The National Transportation Safety Board convened a 2-day public forum in October 2003 to survey the current state of novice driver education and training, including the extent to which it is used, its effectiveness and shortcomings, and what can be done to improve it. While driver education has been available since the 1930s and, intuitively, should improve driving safety, in fact little consensus exists on the benefits of driver education and training, what it should entail, and how it should be delivered. The 29 forum participants included the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, State government representatives, safety and consumer associations, groups offering driver education, and teachers, students, and researchers. This document provides a report of proceedings of this public forum (Introduction; Driver Education Forum Summary, Conclusions, and Recommendations; Graduated Driver Licensing Recommendations; Novice Driver Requirements in the 50 States and District of Columbia) and includes the transcript of the public forum within Part 5.
