This project aimed to undertake an outcome and process effectiveness evaluation of “Braking The Cycle” [BTC], a learner driver mentoring program currently being conducted in South East Queensland. The evaluation incorporated:
- Long-term tracking and analysis of traffic history data (infringements, offences, crashes) – comparing BTC participants with aggregate data from a matched control group (to be matched on key demographics);
- Ongoing quantitative and qualitative data collection with BTC participants focusing on self-reported traffic history, employment, community connections and behavioural outcomes (Learners), as well as process issues including program satisfaction and use, and suggested program improvements (Learners and Mentors);
- Consultation with the providers of learner driver mentor programs in rural Australian communities, including BTC; and
- Development of a strengths and weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) analysis with current stakeholders and key staff.
