Over-confidence is a key factor in crash risk for young drivers. It can lead to speeding and other high-risk behaviours.

In this lesson, students investigate how confidence, over-confidence and under-confidence might impact their driving. They then examine different sources of information about driving and consider how these sources shape their beliefs and attitudes towards driving, and consequently, their confidence when behind the wheel.
