Abstract

Young and inexperienced drivers are over-involved in traffic violations and car crashes. There is a paucity of research on the use of driving simulators for assessing driving style. This study investigated the relationships between years of licensure and driving style measured with a short simulator-based test. At a motor show, 650 licensed drivers completed a 6.5-min driving style test and responded to a questionnaire about their on-road driving experience. The results showed that participants who had their driving license for a longer period adopted a less risky driving style and drove with slower speeds in the simulator. Furthermore, females and experienced drivers reported more simulator sickness than males and inexperienced drivers, respectively. The present results may be useful in the development of simulator-based driving tests.
