Future Role of Driver Licensing in Highway Safety.
Moore, Marjorie, Ed.
The 10 papers in this special report are of interest to safety and enforcement officials, driver educators, and license administrators. They describe driver licensing from several viewpoints and discuss the past, present, and, most importantly, future roles of driver licensing in highway safety. A number of the authors agree that most current licensing practices do little to ensure that applicants possess the knowledge and skills required for safe driving. Most of the papers offer suggestions for research essential for development of better licensing processes. Such research is admittedly costly in both time and money, however, and is likely to suggest licensing and testing procedures that will further increase the cost of administration. (NTIS)
