Abstract [sv]

Lay instructed driver training is an important ingredient in the Swedish

driver licensing system,

since it contributes to increased safety among novice drivers after they have

obtained a licence.

This study shows that apart from these benefits in terms of safety effects,

there are problems

regarding the way in which the lay instructed training is carried out and the

accidents that occur

during practice. However, a cost-benefit estimation shows that the advantages

are much greater

than the disadvantages. An important conclusion from the study is that

measures need to be

introduced in order to reduce the number of accidents during practice and

that there is still a large

potential for increasing the effects of lay instructed training on the

accident situation after

obtaining a licence.

The study was carried out with five aims; to present a knowledge review

concerning lay

instruction and accidents during practice, to describe how lay instructed

training is carried out

today concerning quantity and quality, to analyse police reported injury

accidents during practice

through register studies and in depth analysis of fatal accidents in order to

increase knowledge

about safety during practice driving, to develop suggestions for changes in

lay instructed training

and to develop suggestions for new trial activities with improved driver


The study consists of three parts; a knowledge review, a study of how, when

and where lay

instructed training is carried out, and an analysis of accidents during

practice driving.

In order to improve safety during training and to increase safety effects

after licensing, measures

are suggested for improving the structure and planning of where, when and how

the training is

carried out. Mandatory education of lay supervisors and improved co-operation


supervisors and driving schools are also suggested.
