Past studies of the effects of motorcycle training on crash involvement have shown mixed results. However, many of the studies were conducted when most trainee riders were aged under 20. Now, many trainees are older and have considerable car driving experience. Training programs have also changed. For these reasons, this paper examines the training history of a sample of older riders and the links to their crash involvement.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
