Developing and evaluating a theoretically grounded novice driver education program incorporating simulators

Australian young drivers are 13% of the population but account for nearly a quarter of road deaths. This project will develop a research informed, theory-driven education intervention that includes a simulator component to improve their driving skills and attitudes. A process and outcome evaluation will assess the effectiveness of the training including the impact on how individuals learn to drive, changes in skill and attitudes as well as the influence on crashes and offences. A second, parallel study will adapt the intervention for indigenous Australians and examine the effectiveness of this adaptation.
