The Impact of Three Cognitive Training Programs on Driving Cessation Across 10 Years: A Randomized Controlled Trial

Three different cognitive training programs were assessed to study their effects on driving cessation in older adults. 2,402 participants aged 65 or older completed in-person baseline assessements and one of three trainings or were part of the control group. The programs, reasoning training, speed of processing training, and memory training, were each evaluated using Cox regression analyses to examine impact on driving cessation across ten years. Individuals at risk for future mobility declines were 55% less likely to cease driving after reasoning training and 49% less likely to cease driving with speed of processing training. There were no significant findings for the effects of memory training.
