Download

In order to decrease moped accidents a new driving license category AM for class I mopeds was introduced on October 1st 2009 in Sweden. A 12 hour mandatory training course was introduced including at least 4 hours of practical training. The study aim was to examine the education and which effects it might have on traffic behavior. A qualitative study using direct observations, checklists, interviews and a questionnaire were performed studying five different types of training courses. Results showed that most educators used teacher centered education based on PowerPoint presentations, sometimes engaging students in short group discussions. Teachers received good judgments from the students and had good study materials and a good teaching climate. There was much information in a short amount of time hence the students had to learn a lot by self-tuition. The main emphasis of the theory education was on regulations and traffic signs. The results indicated an improvement of the level of knowledge. However, risk awareness and attitudes towards speeding and alcohol probably remained unchanged. In order to make the educators focus more on these questions, the examination ought to include higher levels of knowledge in accordance to the national curriculum.
