The skill acquisition process of novice drivers under conditions of steady-state cornering is compared with the visual and control performance of experienced drivers. After a short-term training session, the cornering speed of the novice drivers was close to that of the experienced drivers. The visual sampling strategies for the experienced drivers were critically concerned with the inside of the course. The novice drivers, however, tended to pay much attention to the outside of the course. In addition, the search and scan patterns for the novice and experienced drivers were different. It was found that the acquisition speed of visual sampling strategies was slower than that of vehicle handling for the novice drivers in the skill acquisition process.
