The study aimed to understand the role of the traffic teacher in driver training with increasing use of digital technology, for example when part of driver training can be carried out in a driving simulator. The study explored how to create the best possible interaction among traffic teacher, learner driver, and technology. Findings from our literature review and interviews revealed the importance of traffic teachers, to facilitate, adapt, and explain the teaching process to the learner driver. The contribution of the traffic teachers lies in creating a comprehensive understanding of the learner drivers’ situation and fostering reflection. Most of the interviewees believed that learning outcomes are conditioned by learner drivers’ and teachers’ attitudes towards, and experience with, the technology.
