Competing or complementing: Driver education and graduated driver licensing
Bates, Lyndel J., Watson, Barry C., & King, Mark J. (2006) Competing or complementing: Driver education and graduated driver licensing. In Australasian Road Safety, Policing and Education Conference, 25 to 27 October 2006, Gold Coast.
Driver education and graduated driver licensing are two countermeasures designed to help reduce the crash risk of young novice drivers. However, while driver education enjoys popular support there is a lack of evidence confirming that it reduces crash risk. In contrast, research has suggested there is a strong link between the introduction of stronger graduated licensing schemes, which includes restrictions such as limits on late night driving or peer passengers and crash reductions. This paper will present preliminary findings from a survey of novice driver experiences in Queensland. Implications for the better integration of licensing requirements and driving training are discussed.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
