get ID of current inserted ID

When you go to my website, i have a homepage with a button: Start enquete.
When you click that button, you will see the enquete.

In the meantime, when you clicked that button. A ID has been inserted in the database.


        <form method="POST">
            <input type="hidden" name="x">
            <input type="submit" value="Go to enquete">
        $test = $database->insert_user_id();
        //header('Location: enquete/page1.php');

And the function:

function insert_user_id(){
        $sql = "INSERT INTO user (user_id) VALUES (DEFAULT)";
        $sth = $this->pdo->prepare($sql);
        return $this->pdo->('user_id');

the return $this->pdo->(‘user_id’); is something i’m testing with!
Now my question is. How do i return the last inserted id from the table user.
I need to show it on the next page. (See //header).

I can’t do this with a other query like: SELECT MAX ID or GetLastInsertId.
This becuase, when some one else also starts the enquete, he will have an other id all of the sudden.

How do i let the person keep the correct id.
