§ 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.
