New Braunfels – ARIDE

January 18, 2023 - January 19, 2023


The Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) course was developed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) with input from the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Technical Advisory Panel (TAP), and the Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police. ARIDE was created to address the gap in training between the Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST) and the Drug Evaluation and Classification (DEC/DRE) Program.

ARIDE bridges the gap between the SFST and DEC/DRE programs, providing officers with general knowledge related to drug impairment and promoting the use of Drug Recognition Experts (DREs).  This course will train law enforcement officers, to observe, identify, and articulate the signs of impairment related to drugs, alcohol, or a combination of both, to reduce the number of impaired driving incidents as well as crashes which result in serious injuries and fatalities.

Please note:

Participants are required to pass a proficiency exam at the beginning of the course. Those who do not pass, will be dismissed and will not receive course credit.  If you feel you would have difficulty passing the proficiency test, an SFST Refresher course might help.  Visit our partner program, Texas SFST, Texas SFST for FREE training near you or delivered to your agency.
