Vienna Test System TRAFFIC

Assessment of fitness to drive for greater safety on the roads

Did you know that technical improvements do very little to reduce the frequency of accidents on the roads? It is the human factor that is crucial. Traffic safety research shows that 90% of all accidents are attributable to human error (Gelau, Gasser & Seeck, 2012). The driver’s attitude and behavior are thus key factors in accident prevention. This is precisely where traffic psychological assessment comes in. By measuring ability and attitudes relevant to road safety, psychological tests help the assessor make a reliable decision about whether a driver is fit to be allowed on the roads.Tests also ensure fairness because each person is assessed individually and because the assessment criteria are standardized.

Indispensable: tests validated for used in traffic psychology

Only tests validated in a traffic psychology setting provide the assurance that the tests measure the ability and personality characteristics that have a bearing on road safety. Tests that have not been validated – and ones that have not been validated in a traffic psychology setting – endanger the quality of the assessment.

SCHUHFRIED has been conducting research in the field of traffic psychology for more than five decades. Its work on developing and improving digital traffic-psychology assessment tools goes hand in hand with our focus on providing state-of-the-art tests. You too can benefit from our know-how!

More than 1,863 Vienna Test Systems from SCHUHFRIED are currently in use in driving assessment centers worldwide. The tests in the Vienna Test System have been specifically developed for use in traffic psychology and are thus precisely tailored to this field of use. All the tests have been validated for use in traffic psychology and are suitable for people who have limited computer knowledge or none at all. The structured, standardized and objective process ensures that the same conditions apply to all respondents, so that all have the same chance – regardless of their cultural background or level of education.
