Evaluation of Novice Driver Training Schemes in 6 EU-member states
NovEV brings together 7 schemes for 2nd phase training for novice drivers in 6 EU Member States: Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands and Spain (X2). All the schemes included in NovEV are temporary apart from the one in Austria, which introduced its new compulsory multiphase driver training programme in 2003.
The main objective of NovEV is to advise the participating countries on both the training programmes and the evaluations methods used to measure the effects of the training on participants. More specifically, NovEV:
supported the scientific evaluation of each scheme, involving expert input from an evaluation advisor (Turku University, Finland);
provided a forum for information exchange on the evaluation designs, training content and methods used in the 2nd phase schemes in the participating countries;
drew up a final report clearly outlining the training programmes, evaluation designs and results for distribution to policymakers across Europe.
