Following a consultation paper issued by the Secretary of State for Transport in summer 1993, four new measures were introduced to improve the safety of new drivers. These were pre-driver education (a pre-driver education package 'Drive' for schools and colleges was launched in 1996), theory testing (introduced in 1996), post-test training (Pass Plus was launched in 1995), and the re-testing of novice drivers who offend (the Road Traffic New Drivers Act, 1995 came into force in 1997). TRL was contracted by the then DETR to monitor and evaluate each of these new safety measures. The research showed limited evidence for small beneficial effects on young drivers; attitudes, behaviour, driver knowledge and offence rates. (Author/publisher)
