Unlicensed motorists feature prominently in Australias road crash statistics. Their crashes contribute about one in every twelve road fatalities. This monograph describes the Australian fatal crash involvement of those unlicensed motorists who drive or ride without ever having obtained a drivers or riders licence for the type of vehicle used, as distinct from those who drive or ride whilst disqualified. The description is based on data derived from coroners records about fatal crashes in 1994 and 1996, the latest years currently available. Composite descriptions of all unlicensed motorists involved in Australian fatal crashes were given in the former Federal Office of Road Safetys monographs 20 and 21 (1997).
