Samenvatting National Transport Plan 2002-2011 (NTP) points to the need for a comprehensive treatment of the entire driver training and augmenting the training for all categories. Studies have shown that young, inexperienced drivers are particularly prone to accidents. The accident risk decreases quickly during the first months after the acquisition of a driving licence. Ideally drivers should acquire the necessary experience during driver training. Directing effort to better driver training is an important contribution to promoting the zero-vision. The Road Traffic Act of 18 June 1965 provides the legal basis for the regulations relating to driver training. In it the Ministry of Transport and Communications is authorised to issue regulations regarding the theoretical and practical training for persons who intend to acquire a driving licence, proof of competence or proof of having undergone other mandatory driver training. The objectives of the driver training and the requirements relating to the teaching have been laid down by the Directorate of Public Roads in Regulations of 1 October 2004 concerning driver training and driving tests etc. The Regulation concerning driver training and driving tests etc. requires i.a..that the teaching shall be arranged so as to facilitate the learner driver achieving the objectives of the training. The Directorate of Public Roads prepares curricula for the driver training. Whereas the Regulations apply to all driving licence categories, the curricula are issued for each individual driving licence category. The curricula are based on the demands laid down in the Regulations with respect to objectives and teaching. A curriculum is not regarded as regulations pursuant to the Public Administration Act. The grounds for the choices made with respect to the contents and progression of driver training, have been collected together in Chapter I General. This was done for practical reasons. It is important to read the other parts of the curriculum in conjunction with this Chapter. Knowledge of the basis for the step-by-step objectives, subjects and course objectives in the curriculum is essential when planning the teaching. In the following chapters,.the main objectives of the training for the specific driving licence category are cited, as laid down in the Regulations concerning driver training and driving tests etc. In connection with the objectives, references are given to the relevant Sections in the Regulations. Furthermore, a description is given of the steps in the training as well as a description of the mandatory evaluation and guidance interviews and the scope of the mandatory training. This is followed by the step by step objectives for the driving licence category and the contents of the mandatory courses. The syllabus is subdivided in subjects, and main items are suggested for each subject. (Author/publisher) This manual is one of a series of consecutively numbered publications.
