The aim of this investigation was twofold: (1) to describe and analyze the structure, pricing, profit and cost of driver education carried out by Swedish traffic schools, (2) to elucidate the education time and costs for the trainees with respect to age and sex. The traffic schools are generally small companies with respect to size of turnover as well as number of employees and vehicles. The average fee per trainee for theoretical education was 173 swcr by August 1977. The average price for a 40 min driving lesson was 66 swcr by August 1977. More than 50% passing the examination for driving licence during 1975 were women. Generally, the male trainees were younger than the female. Of trainees in the ages 18-20, 78% were men and 59% were women. Of the trainees older than 30, 18% were women and 8% men. The trainees in the cities were somewhat older than those in the rest of Sweden. The number of driving lessons per trainee during 1975 averaged 27. The number of driving lessons increased with the age and for all age groups were larger for female than for male trainees. The cost of a driving licence in June 1976 was 2100 swcr for female and 1300 swcr for male trainees. Compared with 1968 the number of driving lessons per trainee before passing the driving examination is unchanged as well as the difference in time of education between men and women. Since 1968 the total cost of obtaining a driving licence has increased by 100 swcr. This investigation does not deal with the influence of private training on education time. /TRRL/
