AMBIEL, Rodolfo Augusto Matteo; MOGNON, Jocemara Ferreira  and  ISHIZAWA, Fabiana Mitiko. Attitudes toward psychological assessment of candidates for obtaining and renewing driver’s license. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.6, n.2, pp. 18-38. ISSN 2236-6407.

This research aimed to verify the attitudes of the traffic-psychologic evaluation process. There were 50 participants getting their first permission or renewing the license to drive. They answered to a sociodemographic questionnaire and the Attitudes towards Psychologic Evaluation Service Scale. The Results indicated that the participants had a favorable attitude towards the evaluation. The candidates for the first driving license gave importance to the process while the candidates with undergraduate education reduced its value. There were no significances differences of sex or age. There were statistically significant and positive correlations between the factors: importance, efficiency and clarification of the process. Based on the results, it was possible to infer that despite complaints about the evaluation the candidates recognize its importance for the traffic.
