Driving Instructors Association (DIA) and one the UK's largest insurance providers Admiral have teamed up to survey driver and rider trainers to understand if they perceive key differences in the approach to learning to drive in men verses women and in different age groups.
Secondary research dictates that there are gender based differences
between men and women and in different ages groups in terms of the pass rate of driving tests, both practical and theory.
The aim of the survey is to discover if trainers on the groined experience these differences in learning approach between the genders and between different ages groups at pinical times of the learning process:
Carly Brookfield, DIA CEO commented 'Previous research has suggested that training should be adapted to tune in more to the individual needs of the specific genders or age groups. Given our members train across a diverse range of age groups and see many different learning styles across their pupil base, surveying road those road safety professionals at the coalface of driver education can help develop more tailored training approaches and driver education interventions and particularly as part of a ongoing move away from a 'one size fits all' approach to driver training.'
We would appreciate your input on the survey. It only takes a few minutes to complete and your views will be used on ongoing research into training approaches adapted to specific driver behaviour and learning needs.
