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

  • 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
