This insight report reviews evidence for the effectiveness of post-licence driving experience, driver education and training, and limiting the exposure of new drivers to risk through graduated driver licensing in lowering new-driver collisions.
This is a literature review of the effects of experience training and limiting exposure on the collision risk of new drivers.
Driver education and training has little or no direct effect on the collision risk of new drivers.
The exception to this is training that focuses on the cognitive skills involved in hazard perception skills as part of driver licensing.
