MetadataShow full item record
Introduction Based upon neuroscience findings relevant to emerging adults, this paper considers 12 cognitive and behavioural features of young drivers' performance and possible ameliorative strategies to address them. Literature findings Evidence is explored on the extent to which each has been identified and evaluated in respect of young driver training and education in driving performance. The paper considers the extent to which each of these contributions to young driver safety is feasible and has been adopted, identifying those for which further development and implementation is required. Discussion Based upon neuroscience findings as well as the evidence summarised in this paper, it concludes with an outline of an -"ideal"- training program for young novice drivers.
