Analysis of attitude differences of professional drivers in light of occupational change intention

Joanna Fryca-Knop , Beata Majecka , Michał Suchanek , Dagmara Wach


The chapter presents the results of the research on professional drivers in the context of their professional behaviour. Based on a development of the Ajzen’s Theory of Planned Behaviour, a questionnaire is constructed, in which four groups of variables which shape the drivers’ professional behaviour are analysed. The research sample consists of 120 professional drivers. Collected data undergo the validity and reliability analysis in order to identify the latent attitudes. The results indicate that there are a number of latent attitudes in every group of variables. A proper questionnaire can then be used in further research on the relations between the attitudes and the professional behaviour.
