Drive Focus App

This is a fantastic app (on apple ipad or android tablet only), that helps to focus your visual searching skills for driving. The app is American but has Brisbane and Melbourne real-life driving videos, where you have to tap on all the “critical items” during the drive.

Here is a one-minute about the app. Watch the video

We encourage all of our drivers to purchase and practice using this app – you will really find that it helps to improve your alertness on the road.

Here’s what you need to know about the app:
  • A university study identified that six one-hour sessions of Drive Focus significantly reduced driving errors among learner drivers (Alvarez et al 2018). The subjects also rated Drive Focus as valuable for improving their driving skills.
  • Users watch high-definition videos filmed from the driver’s perspective and “tap” on the critical items – whilst reacting as quickly as possible and prioritizing critical items in the correct order (eg brake lights of the car in front before the green traffic light).
  • The app is American with tours of 3 or 4 cities including San Francisco and Vermont – and yes, we have “Australian-ised” the app, with a Brisbane “tour” available on android and i-pad versions, and a Melbourne tour also available on the android version– these include 7 drives lasting three to four minutes, that have a levelling-up element and can be practiced over and over again.
  • Visual cues for critical items can be turned on and off, and the videos can be slowed down to allow more processing time.
  • At an advanced level, there are 2 “emergency services” drives from American cities – complete with lights, sirens and radio distractors.
  • The user’s score is presented at the end of each practice, and android users can email the results to their OT.
  • The app costs approximately $20AUD (once-off fee) which includes access to ALL tours. No renewal fee, no ongoing membership.
  • There are other studies currently taking place in the USA and Canada to examine the efficacy of Drive Focus with populations such as stroke, autism, and combat veterans with post-traumatic stress.
