Recognizing the Cannabis Impaired Motorist

The NYS Governor's Traffic Safety Committee is pleased to announce the availability of a Recognizing the Cannabis Impaired Motorist training. This 8-hour course is designed to enhance the officer’s skills in detecting the cannabis impaired motorist.

This course builds off the officer skills learned in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) DWI Detection and Standardized Field Sobriety Testing Course (SFST). It will include a review of the three (3) Standardized Field Sobriety Tests, contemporary cannabis issues, the differences between recreational and medical cannabis and hemp, along with introducing attendees to three (3) additional test and how to properly administer them to support their observation of cannabis impairment.

This course does not replace the Advance Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) course but is intended to better prepare the officer for ARIDE and the Drug Recognition Expert (DRE) programs.
