HC Deb 11 January 1988 vol 125 c137W
Mr. Atkinson

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what research his Department has carried out into the accident records of drivers in the first year of holding a full driving licence.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

Past work has focused on the age of the driver rather than the period that has elapsed since passing the driving test. A project over the next two years is identifying the training and driving experience of a sample of L-drivers and reviewing their driving history 12 months later.
