DRIVER EDUCATION SURVEY. A REPORT ON A SPECIAL TELEPHONE SURVEY

A special survey on driver education and its funding was conducted during October, 1978 by interviewing nearly equal numbers of Auto Club members and non-members. The poll was conducted to determine Southern California adults' opinions on high school driver education programs. Topics covered in the survey included the following: 1. Should driver education be required? 2. How should driver education be financed? 3. Should public schools be required to offer driver education? 4. How worthwhile is driver education? Generally, survey participants favored public high schools providing both classroom and behind-the-wheel training instruction for students before licensing. Most citizens polled supported driver education course requirements for 16 and 17 year olds before a driver's license is issued, feeling that driver instruction courses are "very worthwhile." (E)
