This study aimed to evaluate the psychometric properties of the Brazilian version of Driving Cognitions Questionnaire (DCQ). Additionally, DCQ scores were correlated with State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI-T and STAI-S), and a t-test was performed to check for differences in means of DCQ in the sample groups. Two hundred students who were preparing to receive a Driver's License in categories A or B participated in the research. Results show a factor structure similar to the original version with good internal consistency. The correlation between DCQ and STAI-T and STAI-S was significant and moderate and the results of the t-test indicated no significant difference in the mean total score of DCQ between men and women, but there was a significant difference between the students in practical and theoretical classes
