Focus groups were conducted with the parents of young people learning to drive who were either participating in or not participating in a professional driver education course. Guided by the Goals for Driver Education (GDE) Framework, the focus groups investigated parents perceptions about what professional driver education courses should focus on training their children. The study also utilized a novel draw-and-talk qualitative research technique to gain parents perspectives about using driving simulators within professional driver education courses.
