Sammendrag

In this project we have evaluated the practical driver’s test for passenger cars, and whether current practice complies with the principles in the training model, as well as national and international regulations. To do this, all relevant documents were reviewed. In addition, observations of driver test situations, two group interviews with sensors, and a survey among both sensors (n = 77) and traffic teachers (n = 288) were carried out. The results indicate that the driving test is mainly carried out in accordance with legislation, guidelines and requirements, and that the examiners are well pleased with the training they have in making comprehensive and discretionary assessments. Nevertheless, the results indicate that some conditions can be improved. The administrative process can be made more efficient. Furthermore, one can investigate current practices when it comes to securing a common language between the candidate and the sensor. One could also investigate issues regarding impartiality and sensor feedback.
