Background and Objective: Road accident is one of the most common causes of death and injury of people and sometimes the cause of permanent cripple. Rescuing of the victims, preventing from aggravating the injuries and helping them to transfer to medical centers depends on applying the first aids at the scene of the accident. The drivers are the first people who are faced with the victims in road accidents, therefore we decided to determine the knowledge and attitudes of driving license trainees about first aids for the victims of road accidents. Material and Methods: In this cross-sectional study in 2007, using census sampling, 240 driving license trainees of 12 institutes in Gorgan filled out a valid and reliable questionnaire about knowledge and attitudes toward first aids for road accident victims. We used a Questionnaire including 29 questions in the field of first medical helps and analyzed the data by using descriptive and analytical statistics. Results: Most of the trainees (86%) are younger than 20 years old. Eighty-three point eight percent of them have high school diploma. The trainees (71.3%) have never passed any first aid training class. The knowledge of 70% of them is average. The trainees’ attitude (65.8%) is average. There is no significant relationship between the study variables and knowledge and attitudes of the trainees toward first aids of victims of road accidents. Conclusion: The results indicate that most of trainees of driving license that may be a driver in future have average knowledge and attitudes toward first aids and need to be instructed.
