TitleMotorcyclist licensing requirements and subsequent injury experience in four countries
AuthorsMcLean AJ, Paul CY, Chen TW, Wong TW, Ukai T
Year1991
TypeConference Paper
AbstractThe effect of'licensing requirements for motorcyclists on the risk of serious injury in the first year of riding compared to subsequent years was investigated in this study. The study was based on two centres where learner's permits were issued, Adelaide and Kuala Lumpur, and on two other centres, Singapore and Suita, where off-road rider training to the stage of full licensure was compulsory. The differences in motorcyclist licensing procedures between the above jurisdictions indicated that a comparative study could be used to test the following hypothesis: "Off-road rider training during the learner period, with no on-road exposure until the full licence is awarded, will result in a lower risk of injury to a motorcyclist during the first 12 months of on-road riding.
