Assessing and Improving the Cognitive and Visual Driving Fitness of CDL Drivers

Our team wants to better understand the impact of fatigue and inattention on commercial drivers' safety. Our goal is to help truck drivers drive longer and safer. We won't be sharing the results and we will help our participants with useful information that will assist them in any concerns we may find.

The participants will need to come in for a visual, cognitive and mobility testing evaluation. This will take two hours. The participants will be asked to come in once a year for three years. We will give them useful information, including height, weight, body mass index (BMI), that will assist them in any concerns we may find.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Active¬†Commercial Driving License (CDL)
