Data was analyzed by using Multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA), correlation coefficients and SPSS.

The findings of correlation coefficients were as follows: there were a significant and positive correlation between age and all types of errors and violence (P<0.05); negative and significant correlation was found between education with dangerous and aggressive errors and lapses (P<0.05); but positive and significant correlation was found between education and aggressive violation (P<0.05); there was no correlation between education score and ordinary violation; also, no correlation was found between years of driving and wearing safety belt with errors and violence (P>0.05).

Therefore, it is recommended to perform psychological assessments and adequate training in order to reduce the accident rate at the time of selection and obtaining driving licenses and periodically thereafter.
