      Hello everyone,We are researchers at the University of Nottingham who are interested in the way that people with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) learn to drive and experience driving once they have passed their test. Being able to drive is an important skill as it increases one’s mobility and independence, and can also allow for greater employment opportunities. Although topics on forums like these suggest that people with ASD experience specific difficulties when driving, there has been little systematic investigation into this. Therefore, we have set-up an online survey to collect information from a large number of individuals with ASD. The findings of the survey will be used to inform future research exploring driving skills in people with ASD and to help develop ways to improve the learning process. We are also aiming to set up a dedicated website with useful information about ASD and driving, which will include findings of the survey. The survey is for anyone who has ever attempted to learn to drive, current learner drivers and people who have already passed their test. It is completely anonymous and should only take about 10 minutes to complete. This is the link to the survey:http://tinyurl.com/ASDdrivingsurveyThank you very much for taking part!If you have any questions or comments please contact Dr. Danielle Ropar (danielle.ropar@nottingham.ac.uk)The Nottingham Autism Research Teamhttp://www.psychology.nottingham.ac.uk/research/art/
