The Details

What you need

Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) is a 2 day course offered to provide law enforcement personnel and other criminal justice professionals information in the area of drug impairment in the context of traffic safety. It is not intended to replace the Drug Recognition (DRE) Expert Program, and participants will NOT be qualified to be DREs.

The prerequisite for attending ARIDE is Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST) certification. Although the focus of ARIDE is on drug impaired driving, the participants will get review of the SFSTs. On the first day, after review, participants must show proficiency in SFSTs in front of an instructor. Participants must pass this proficiency to continue on in the ARIDE course.
