This study applied the Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB) and the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) to assess drivers’ a priori acceptance of Conditional (SAE Level 3) and Full (SAE Level 5) automated vehicles (AVs). Queensland drivers’ (N = 505) were invited to complete a 20 minute online survey. The findings revealed that the TPB predictors of attitudes, subjective norms, and perceived behavioural control and the TAM predictors of perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use explained variance in future intentions to use Conditional and Full AVs.
