ABSTRACT

This research carefully evaluate the driving school standardization programme (DSSP) since its inception in the year 2008. Investigation were made into the objective of DSSP. Secondary data were collected to determine the post and preDSSP effect on road traffic crash as well as the vehicular population at every given year. Three sets of primary data were collected. Firstly to ascertain the level of compliance by the driving schools on the driving school standardization programme, second to determine the effect of the training received by drivers on knowledge of road traffic signs and regulations and its effect on their driving habit. Thirdly the quality of service delivery by drivers on the commuters. A total of 320 copies of questionnaires were administered, out of which a total number of 250 were duly completed and returned. Data were analyzed using pair sample t-test analysis. Factor analysis was employed to condense large number of variables with a view to identify the underlying variables that really explains the pattern of correlation with a set of observed variables. Result revealed that there was a significant improvement in road traffic crash reduction in the year 2010. However in the year, the crash statistics was high implying that the crash reduction was not consistent with the introduction of DSSP. Which suggest more effort to be geared towards driver education, enforcement, and establishment of more driving schools.

Keywords: Driving school, road traffic, drivers, signs and regulations, driving habit, Federal road safety commission, driving school.
