The European Commission with the active contribution of NTUA, SWOV and KFV has published at the European Road Safety Observatory, the Young Novice Drivers Thematic Report which refers to the safety of age group 16-24 years old drivers. This Thematic Report describes how novice drivers gain their driving license, as well as novice drivers in relation to road safety hazards. Furthermore, countermeasures about driver training, additional training, exposure, legislation and vehicles are suggested, with particular emphasis on the effectiveness of measures of higher-order skill training and testing in driving licence systems, such as hazard perception and risk awareness. link pdf5
