Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to explain the development, content, evaluation, effectiveness and future of the National Driver Improvement Scheme in Britain. The scheme is operated by 31 Police Forces in conjunction with local Authority Road Safety Units or Private sector driver training bodies. I hope to illustrate that for those traffic offences which Police Forces are referring drivers to the National driver Improvement scheme, driver training does help the driver and has tangible benefits for the wider community.
