TRAINING PROGRAM FOR DRIVER LICENSING SCREENING FOR MEDICAL IMPAIRMENT

The purpose of the contract was to create a complete curriculum package for training motor vehicle license examiners to identify individuals with potentially unsafe physical or mental conditions. The present report describes the process followed in developing the training and the products that resulted. One of the by-products developed for the subject curriculum was the Medical Evaluation Checklist---a performance aid that helps driver examiners to decide whether or not an applicant should be referred to a physician for medical evaluation. Part II of the present report describes the development of curriculum materials designed to combat the problem of false identification documents presented by applicants for operator's licenses. These materials teach driver examiners to detect imposters and altered or counterfeit documents. They convey the scope of the false ID problem and establish motivation for scrutinizing ID documents carefully.
