Data on ADHD and Driving from

Researchers Russell Barkley, PhD, and Daniel Cox, PhD, reviewed the scientific literature on the driving risks and impairments associated with ADHD and the effects of stimulant medication on driving performance. Among their findings:

  • Young drivers with ADHD are two to four times more likely to have traffic accidents, three times as likely to have injuries, four times more likely to be at fault, and six to eight times more likely to have their licenses suspended.
  • Effective behavioral treatments are needed that can help young drivers with ADHD while driving, including additional behind the wheel hours and formal training, the use of  cell phone blocking technology, and a Driver’s Contract.
  • Based on the research, clinicians should educate patients and caregivers about the increased risk of adverse outcomes among untreated individuals with ADHD, and the role of medication in improving driving performance.

With these sobering statistics, it only makes sense for parents and teens with ADHD to approach driving with caution. As a parent, you will want to proceed slowly and with much more practice than might be required for teens without ADHD. An understanding of the importance of taking medication when driving can be crucial. And clear expectations of who can be in the car, use of cell phones, curfews, and the many other distractions of adolescence need to be addressed. There are programs that have been developed to help teens learn the skills of driving safely
