RISKETTAN (or “risk education part 1) is the first of two mandatory risk education courses where you, as a driver license student, gain knowledge about, and the chance to discuss, different types of risky behavior in traffic. For  instance, we go through:

  • How different kinds of distraction factors affect you as a driver. Such as fellow passengers, mobile phones, stress and fatigue.
  • The rules for drunk driving, drugs and fatigue in traffic.
  • How attitudes and behaviors affect you as a driver.
  • Statistics and accident proneness of demographic groups, such as women/men, younger/older.
