Abstract

In line with European developments, a Dutch second phase coaching program was developed for young novice drivers to counteract their high accident risk. In this paper the design principles of the program are described. The empirical study focused on the entry characteristics of the participating young drivers (n=3117) as compared to a reference group of young drivers (n=345). Results show that the DX program attracted young drivers that in some respects showed a more risky profile than average young drivers in terms of speed violations, anger and the number of fines. In addition, four groups of participants with sharply differing driving styles could be distinguished.

A Coaching Program for Recently Licensed Young Drivers in the Netherlands: Which Drivers are Attracted?

Bolton Landing, New York

In line with European developments, a Dutch second phase coaching program was developed for young novice drivers to counteract their high accident risk. In this paper the design principles of the program are described. The empirical study focused on the entry characteristics of the participating young drivers (n=3117) as compared to a reference group of young drivers (n=345). Results show that the DX program attracted young drivers that in some respects showed a more risky profile than average young drivers in terms of speed violations, anger and the number of fines. In addition, four groups of participants with sharply differing driving styles could be distinguished.
