Driver Education

While the use of Driver Education through courses and promotional material is widespread its effectiveness in producing safe behavioural change is controversial. It may even be that certain types of Driver Education have detrimental impacts on driver safety. Research in this area is therefore needed to insure that educational initiatives are effective.

Relevant projects/links:

TRIALS [in Dutch only]. We evaluated the effectiveness of this young driver's course.

"Without Alcohol on the road" (alcoholvrij op weg) [in Dutch only]. Programme that aims to enhance awareness of young people by letting them personally experience the effect of alcohol on driving abilities on a closed track.
