Abstract

Based on a competence-oriented view of driving a driver performance assessment (DPA) has been developed to inform learner drivers about their progress in acquiring driving proficiency. An initial validation study was carried out to evaluate the adequacy of inferences based on DPA-scores assigned by driving instructors. The results of two pilots are presented. Implications for driving performance assessment within driver training programs are discussed.
