TitleDeveloping measures to reduce unlicensed driving
AuthorsBaldock MRJ, Royals J, Raftery SJ, Bailey TJ, Lydon M
Year2013
TypeReport
AbstractThis report considers countermeasures to reduce the incidence of unlicensed driving on Australian roads.

Unlicensed motorists pose a problem to road safety authorities as they are operating independently of the established licensing system and are known to have higher than average crash rates. By operating beyond the licensing system, unlicensed motorists reduce the ability of authorities to monitor and manage driver behaviour and reduce the impact of the sanction of licence loss.

The report is based on a review of Australian and international literature, with an emphasis on articles with the greatest relevance to Australia and discussions with stakeholders. It identifies the countermeasures most likely to be effective and feasible in Australia and provides a path to their implementation.
