Welcome to Lifelongdriving.org
The aim of lifelongdriving.org is to provide a resource for drivers at every stage of their driving career. We wish to provide free access to tests that psychologists and driver trainers use to assess and improve the safety of drivers, so that you can test yourself and see how good your skills are. We are starting small, with just a few tests, but we hope to grow over the next few years to become a major resource for drivers who wish to pit their skills against our tests.
We also wish to encourage you to take part in research hosted on this site that is being conducted by transport psychologists. By taking part in our studies you will be contributing to our efforts to develop tests that assess and improve driver safety. Our goal is to publish academic articles that policy makers can then use to base their future decisions upon.
Finally, we also want to provide a fun and informative site. We will aim to provide information to keep you updated on changes in legislation, current debates in road policy, and driving tips that most drivers would never otherwise come across. We value your feedback, and hope that, with your help, we can develop lifelongdriving.org over the next few years into a resource that all drivers will value.
How Safe Are Britain's Roads
Lifelongdriving psychologists recently appeared on BBC2's How Safe Are Britain's Roads (episode 2), demonstrating the NITES simulation facility, and the 'What Happens Next?' test that is available on this site. Try the test for yourself.
Lifelongdriving has just launched its new look website (you're looking at it!). If you have any feedback on the new site to help us improve, please do get in touch.
Have a look at our latest academic paper: 'Negotiating left-hand and right-hand bends: A motorcycle simulator study to investigate experiential and behaviour differences across rider groups.' You can download this for free from the Public Library of Science.
