Safer streets for all of us

In traffic situations and in accident prevention, not only a person’s cognitive abilities, but also their personality traits play a crucial role.
This is precisely where traffic psychological assessment comes in.

DRIVESC Fitness to Drive Screening

DRIVESC Fitness to Drive Screening

Tests validated in a traffic psychology setting provide assurance that the tests measure those ability and personality characteristics that are relevant to road safety.

The Fitness to Drive screening test set (DRIVESC) is an especially efficient way to assess the most important ability dimensions of the fitness to drive for any person with a neurological and/or psychological disorder.

DRIVESC Fitness to Drive Screening

VTS offers several different solutions for assessing fitness to drive outside clinical contexts. Our test sets are compilations of specific tests, all of which are designed to answer overarching questions with particular efficiency.
DRIVESTA offers a general assessment of abilities relevant to motor vehicle driving. DRIVEPLS serves a similar purpose, but additionally measures peripheral perception and is thus suited for assessing drivers with an increased degree of responsibility (of taxis or hazardous goods transports, for example) or people prone to risky driving.
The VTS also includes test sets that have been specifically compiled according to the legal requirements of particular countries (FEV for Germany or DRIVE-FR for France).

Just filter according to the dimensions relevant to your use case, such as attention, reaction behavior or driving-related aspects of personality.

Advantages of digital psychological testing in assessing fitness to drive:

  • All tests have been validated in a traffic psychology setting!
  • All respondents receive fair testing thanks to a standardized, objective process – regardless of an individual’s education level or cultural background.
  • The large number of languages available in VTS enables testing in the respondent’s mother tongue.
  • Digital testing offers enormous cost and time savings compared with driving tests.
  • Specifically designed input and output devices allow accurate measurement of relevant traffic psychological dimensions (such as reaction time or peripheral perception).
  • Comprehensive norms for all tests and test sets offer a meaningful context for test results.
  • VTS generates automatic, error-free and visually clear scoring of all test results. For some tests, a verbal summary of the results (report) is offered as well.
  • Test and personal data are stored securely and are available to you for further administrative use.
  • Maintenance of mobility in old age or impairment: Traffic-psychological assessment serves not only to identify unsafe drivers, it also provides a basis for devising and recommending specific measures to maintain older people’s fitness to drive.

A perfect team:
The Vienna Test System and CogniPlus

With the Vienna Test System, you make objective decisions about the current status of a person’s cognitive abilities. With the empirically based training program CogniPlus, you can support your patients during rehabilitation in the areas of attention functions, executive functioning, memory, neglect/visual field, spatial processing and visuomotor abilities.

Kognitives Training mit CogniPlus

The theory-led “Test – Train – Evaluate” concept

CogniPlus was developed in close conjunction with the VTS. This means diagnosis and training build on one another. First, neuropsychological testing is used to determine the training needs and goals, then a training plan is developed and implemented in CogniPlus. Subsequent training progress is then measured again using the VTS.
The corresponding tests and training programs are based on the same clearly defined theoretical constructs. However, the tests and cognitive training programs use different tasks. This enables a reliable distinction to be made between the material-specific learning effect and the desired training effect.
