La diffusion du permis de conduire en France


  • Roux, S.


Transportation has undergone extraordinary growth during the last century, and has continued to do so throughout the twenty-first century. The knowledge of mobility in France is partly based on National Travel Surveys. These surveys have been conducted on five occasions in France (1966–1967, 1973–1974, 1981–1982, 1993–1994 and 2007–2008), and have provided five photographies of the level of mobility for French households. The paper aims at analyzing the distribution of driving licenses amongst the French population during the past 40 years, and to study the inequality of access to driving licenses according to several socio-demographic criteria. The results emphasize, firstly, the increase in the number of driving license holders from among the elderly and a decrease for those under 25 years and, secondly, the reduction in gender inequalities, whilst these however continue to exist. The paper additionally highlights that the area of residence played a bigger role in 2007 compared to 1993.
