Screening for Cognitive Impairment: Ontario’s Enhanced Road Test March 17/2021


Robyn Robertson
Traffic Injury Research Foundation

This presentation provides an overview of a new cognitive road test developed by the Traffic Injury Research Foundation (TIRF) for the Ministry of Transportation in Ontario, Canada (MTO). TIRF developed and evaluated the Enhanced Road Test (ERT) in 2016 to assess a driver’s cognitive fitness to drive. It was designed to flag individuals for potential cognitive impairment and help distinguish between those drivers fit to drive and those not fit to drive. The presentation summarizes research evidence on fitness to drive and cognitive impairment, describes the different components of the ERT, discusses key findings from this study, and reviews conclusions as well as next steps for drivers, employers and owner operators.
