Traffic psychological examination

In order for participation in motorized road traffic to run with the greatest possible safety and fluency, it is necessary that the driver meets a number of minimum requirements. The task of the traffic psychological driving aptitude test is to record the requirements for safe driving of a motor vehicle in the most objective way possible.

Scope of investigation

No computer skills are required for the traffic psychological examination. We guarantee optimal test support in a calm and pleasant atmosphere. Vehicle-specific performance functions, such as the ability to react, alertness or the ability to observe, as well as personality traits that are important for behavior in road traffic are checked. An opinion is drawn up on the basis of the test results and a conversation with the traffic psychologist. The examination takes about three to four hours (full traffic psychological examination).

Reasons for the traffic psychological test

As part of the official order, the examination by the medical officer / police doctor cannot clarify all questions of suitability. Sometimes the doctor therefore demands a precise traffic psychological opinion to clarify the question of whether the necessary driving-specific performance and / or a sufficient willingness to adapt to traffic is actually given.
