Extent of the problem
Extent of the Problem

  • Young drivers (17-24 yrs), Queensland, 2008

    • 13% of licensed driver/ rider population

    • 20% of persons killed

    • 33% of all fatalities arose from crashes involving young drivers/ riders


Graduated driver licensing gdl
Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL)

  • Novice gains more supervised driving experience under lower-risk driving conditions over an extended duration

  • Enhanced GDL for Learners, Queensland July 2007

    • Minimum age 16 years, minimum duration 1 year

    • Must record 100 hours supervised practice recorded in logbook, including 10 hours of night driving

    • First 10 hours of professional supervision equates to 30 logbook hours

  • Enhanced GDL for Provisional period at same time


Study aims
Study Aims

  • To document the experiences of Learners within the current-GDL program (introduced July 2007)

    2. To compare some of the experiences of Learners within the current-GDL program with those of Learners within the former-GDL program (pre-July 2007)







Additional results current gdl only
Additional Results – Current-GDL only

  • When did you get most of your driving practice? One third “from the beginning”; 50% of males and 60% of females “mainly at the end” of the Learner period

  • Did you continue practising after submitting your logbook and the practical driving assessment? 94.8% yes

  • How accurate were the entries in your logbook? 83.2% of novices reported their logbook accurate 12.8% of novices reported some rounding up of hours 4.0% of novices reported including extra hours


Strengths and limitations
Strengths and Limitations

  • Former-GDL/ Current-GDL/ Comparison

    • Representativeness of samples

    • Accuracy of responses

    • Key measures explored

    • Longitudinal research

    • Emerging results need to be confirmed by larger-scale evaluations


In conclusion
In Conclusion

  • Novices gained more supervised driving experience

  • Parents supervising Learners more

  • No change in number of hours of supervision provided by driving instructors

  • Novices reported less crash-involvement

  • No increase in unsupervised driving

  • Novices reported less difficulty obtaining supervised driving practice
