The study describes changes in driver-licensing rate among young people and changes in car use among young people in the nineties. The results of the study are discussed in light of changes in the general travel habits of young people. The study shows that there was a decline in the licensing rate among young people in the nineties, and that there was an increase in car use among those with drivers license in the same period. At the same time it was observered an increase among young people's use of other means of transportation. The main results indicate that it is necessary to distinguish between at least two different types of young people to understand the development in the nineties: Those who are interested in cars maintain their licensing rate and their level of car use, whereas those less interested in cars have become less inclined to acquire a drivers license and may have changed their travel behaviour in general.
