Accidents are prevalent in low and middle income countries and majority of the world’s deaths occur in developing countries due to road crashes. Among many factors contributing to crashes, driver errors and errant behaviors have been attributed by some road safety professionals, and a large proportion of the general public, to be one of the biggest contributors. In Bangladesh, this problem is exacerbated by the lack of proper drivers’ training and testing. As discrepancies are often observed in issuing license in Bangladesh, it is important to know whether the licensing procedure have any effect on drivers’ attitude as this characteristic generally plays a major role in the involvement of crashes. For this purpose, a well-conceived questionnaire survey was conducted on the attitude of heavy vehicle drivers. To fulfill the objective of the study, drivers are classified into three groups: (a) took no test; (b) took some tests; (c) took all tests. Analysis of mean responses and One-way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) are utilized to assess the influence of existing licensing system on drivers’ attitude in Bangladesh.
