Driver Behaviour Questionnaire (DBQ) is the most popular self-report driving assessment tool globally for assessing crash risk and aberrant driving behaviours among motorists. Therefore, this study reports on the utilisation of the DBQ to examine the self-reported driving behaviours (and crash outcomes) of a sample of university students. Questionnaires which contains demographic questions and 36 items measuring driving behaviour (including driving distractions, violations, errors and lapses) in traffic were distributed manually to participants. The findings show that distractions factor is most frequently reported items among all of the respondents (M = 4.11). Besides, there are also significant association among the demographic factors such as 'driving experience' and 'vehicle type' with gender of respondents. Meanwhile, there is no significant association between 'accident involvement' with gender of respondents. In terms of driving behaviour comparison, the behaviour among male drivers is significantly different compared to female drivers in all the scores and the constructs 'violations', 'errors and 'lapses' except for the construct 'distractions'. Meanwhile, there is no significant difference between drivers who have and have not possessed valid driving license in all driving behaviour.
