Adelaide Self-Efficacy Scale-screening tool

Adelaide Driving Self-Efficacy Scale

This tool is available to download free of charge. It consists of a set of 12 driving behaviours developed by experts. It is rated on a scale of 1-10, 1 having great difficulty and 10 having no difficulty. It may also be used as a proxy scale by a family member. It appears to be a reliable and valid measure of driving self-efficacy.

If you scored under 5 in any of the 10 questions we would advise speaking with your GP about this.
