Detailed Description+

The test set DRIVESTA Fitness to Drive Standard assesses 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.
DRIVESTA has a wide variety of uses in two important application areas: Firstly, it 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, it is 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.
As an alternative, you can also use the DRIVEPLS test set. The test set DRIVEPLS is based on the DRIVESTA test set and also assesses 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.
