Abstract

The study aims to analyze the most common mistakes novice/young drivers make when driving. The study was conducted on a group of 32 students of the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences,, University of Bucharest. Of these, 29 belong to the group of participants (20 women and 9 men) and 3 of the expert group (two women and one man). Participants were applied a single questionnaire. The Errors in Driving Activity Questionnaire (EDAQ) was designed and built in the study. The questionnaire was built based on the taxonomy proposed by Salmon, Regan and Johnston (2006). The study results reveal that the majority of errors made ​​by young drivers are caused by problems related to other road users and the perceived lack of enforcement of the law. The study highlights the prevalence of certain conditions and errors concerning the young driver. We discussed the theoretical and practical implications of the results, limitations of the study and future directions suggested.
