Abstract: Drunk driving is one of the most prevalent health risk behaviours and causes of traffic injuries in Lithuania. Authors argue that possible countermeasure for decreasing this risk might be driving education leading to attitude change. This study is intended to find out if the current driving training practices in Lithuania can change the drunk driving attitude, and how this change is related to personality. A cross-sectional survey using self-report questionnaire (with attitude towards drunk driving scale, scales of impulsivity, aggressiveness and Big five personality traits) was carried out. The total sample included 94 learners – drivers, who filled in the questionnaire at the beginning and at the end of their driving training program. Results showed that attitude towards drunk driving remained the same for 50% respondents, changed to more negative for 31% and changed to more positive for 19% of respondents. Changes were related to gender, but not related to personality traits
