Presentation: Transforming the driving test (working title)
This presentation will cover the results of the research into the proposed changes to the car driving test. It is a high profile scientifically robust study – one of the best examples currently being run in the world. It will provide badly needed updates on our understanding of basic information about learning to drive in GB, including time taken to learn, number of hours of tuition, proportions of drivers having crashes within six months of passing their test etc.
