    Automated systems (like ADAS) put new and additional requirements at the driver for supervising safe system operations. Despite ADAS’ potential advantages for traffic safety and efficiency, assessment of such requirements is not included in driver licensing today. Based on a narrative review of aspects that define preferred driving behaviour, this research collected relevant behavioural aspects for the assessment of a learner driver’s supervisory role. It was acknowledged that ADAS causes both interruptions and temporarily rises in task-level required from drivers. An important assessment will therefore be whether the learner driver is capable of switching between the required tasks levels, while safeguarding correct anticipation and the interests of other road users. The assessment should also include correct application of system knowledge. These results set an important step in exploring how driver training and testing should increase drivers’ ability to correctly work with automated driving systems and take full advantage of them.
