Application

Assesses visual observational skill, obtaining an overview, visual orientation ability and speed of perception when driving.
A quick and accurate grasp of complex visual situations is particularly important when driving. Because test presentation is adaptive, respondents are neither over- nor under-challenged and can therefore perform at their best. The test is used in traffic psychology and in safety assessments of professional drivers for personnel psychology purposes.

Administration

Pictures of traffic situations appear briefly on the screen. A cue (tone) is sounded before presentation. After seeing each picture, the respondent is asked to state what was in it, choosing from five answer options that are given. The answer options are the same for each item.

S2: Left-hand traffic
S3: Easy form without time limit – right-hand traffic
