- Sixteen samples of 8,000 candidates taking their practical driving test in a particular week were selected every three months. These candidates were sent a questionnaire shortly after taking their practical test, which included questions about their preparation for both the theory and practical elements of the driving test, time spent in different types of driving environment and also some basic attitude questions. More than 42,000 people responded to this first questionnaire.
- The second element of the project was to follow the experiences of new drivers at intervals of 6, 12, 24 and 36 months after passing the test. Questionnaires collected information on driving experience, accidents, offences, attitudes and self-reported behaviours. It was possible to assess the effects of changes of the introduction of the hazard perception component to the theory test in November 2002.
