Part IV in a series of studies, conducted at the UNC Highway Safety Research Center, of novice teen drivers. This report provides an overview of a training session developed for parents, that aims to improve parent "coaching" of their teen drivers.
This is the latest in a series of reviews of research on graduated driver licensing (GDL) published in the Journal of Safety Research, covering the period January 1, 2010-June 1, 2012 and work in progress. The intent is to keep researchers and policy makers current regarding the existing state of knowledge about GDL, and to identify information gaps and areas where clarification of research findings is needed. The recent research indicates that we continue to learn about ways to extend GDL benefits, but there remain important questions in need of further inquiry.
