The content of training programs in driving schools should be based on empirical data and focus on those psychomotor, cognitive and perceptual mental disabilities which associated with high accident rates for novice drivers. The curriculum should learn experience demonstrating existing safety practices and, thus, motivate young drivers to drive safely. Methods of training should be developed to address lifestyle problems and psychosocial factors that can mitigate any learning effects and lead to dangerous driving.

This article presents solutions that are defined as changing the paradigm of education in driving schools, which will allow you to redesign the process of training drivers on those aspects of driving that are associated with the risk of accidents. Thus, the study examines ways to reduce the accident rate of drivers who recently received a license to drive a car. To achieve the goal, accident statistics were analysed, depending on driving experience and age of drivers. Authors researched the works of specialists on this topic. The influence of the Internet and computer games on the psychology of novice drivers was also studied. As a result, the process of formation of driving skills in the entrepreneurial educational process of driving schools is described.

Statistics show a significant scale of road traffic offenses. Annually more than 80 million administrative violations are revealed. Participants of road traffic are obliged to comply with the requirements of legislation.

The purpose of the initial training of drivers should consist in obtaining the necessary knowledge, skills, which will enable them to obtain a driving license, but also to drive safely in traffic conditions. The ability to master the skills of safe driving is only partially limited to the psychology of young people and can be partially compensated by intensive driving lessons to acquire a driving experience. In the article analyzed the best practices, acquire a driving practice in relatively safe conditions. Therefore, the driver training system should be aimed at assessing the driver's level of possession of these qualities.

As a result, authors offer novice drivers to be demanding on the choice of a driver’s school and consider the criteria by which you should choose a suitable and effective driver’s school, which will give you complete and deep knowledge.
