Are declines or delays in youth driver licensing evident in New South Wales or Queensland?
Submission Date: 2019
Declining driver licensing rates or delays in licensure among youth have been reported in several countries in recent years, including in Europe and North America, as well as in Australia. It has been argued this could be due to tougher graduated licensing systems. The current research aims to explore whether such declines or delays are evident New South Wales and Queensland. The focus is on licensing trends pre and post July 2007 for those aged younger than 25 years versus older, given both states introduced significant licensing reforms at this time, with some exemptions applying from age 25.
