SFST Review and Introduction to Drug Impaired Driving

This SFST Review and Introduction to Drug Impaired Driving online course was designed for police officers who are interested in reviewing their impaired driving detection skills, their SFST designation, and becoming more familiar with the various drugs that can impair driving and the observable signs of drug impairment.

  • Recall how to administer the SFST Test, assess the subject and interpret the test
  • Recognize the seven (7) drug categories and the signs of impairment
