Abstract

An occupational therapist who involved with driving rehabilitation should use a proper evaluation in identifying safe driving behaviour during the pre-driving assessment. Many reports have stated that human factors contributed up to 97% of collision. This study aims to develop a psychological evaluation that measures human factors in traffic safety during the pre-driving assessment. This study was involved sequential mix methodology approach. The factor analysis was carried out to determine the validity and reliability of the evaluation (Cronbach alpha .887). This assessment found to be adequate in providing the standard means of risky driving attitude based on the cut off value established.

Keywords: Occupational science; Pre-driving assessment; Functional activities; Driving rehabilitation
