Participants: young novice drivers between the age of 17 and 25 that held their temporary or permanent driver's license were randomly assigned to a training intervention or a control intervention. The pretest, training or control intervention and the posttest that were all conducted on the first testing day took approximately two hours to complete. The follow-up test that was conducted two to four weeks later, took about one hour to complete. The effects of training were assessed in a driving simulator by tracking participants' eye movements. Results: The hazard handling scores were significantly higher for the trained group, as indicated by a significantly h
