Detailed Description+

The test set DRIVEPLS Fitness to Drive Plus is used to measure individuals’ driving-related ability in order to assess their fitness to drive.

It assesses driving-related ability on the basis of the dimensions of obtaining an overview, logical reasoning, concentration, stress tolerance, and ability to react. In addition to the results of the individual tests, an overall assessment of the respondent’s driving-related ability is provided. The overall assessment, which is reported using a five-point scale, takes account of the possibility of compensating for performance deficits through strengths in other ability ranges.

The DRIVEPLS test set is based on the DRIVESTA test set. In addition to the five dimensions of the DRIVESTA test set it tests peripheral perception, which is needed for estimation of speed, control of the vehicle and monitoring of the driving environment. Adding the dimension of peripheral perception increases the time and effort involved in testing. However, this also increases the validity of the result. DRIVESTA and DRIVEPLS have a wide variety of uses in two important application areas: Firstly, they can be used to identify performance impairments in potentially dangerous drivers, for example in connection with alcohol and substance abuse, age-related deterioration in ability or psychiatric abnormalities. Secondly, they are used in the selection of “drivers with increased responsibility”, including drivers of taxis, buses and trucks carrying hazardous loads.
The perfect complement to it is the PERSROAD test set: between them the two test sets assess both cognitive aspects of fitness to drive and the relevant personality characteristics, thereby providing a highly informative overall picture of the respondent.
