The objective of the in-depth study was to determine which activities currently applied by driver licensing agencies in the United States deserve priority for consideration as recommended strategies, and to provide suggestions that may facilitate the implementation of the recommended strategies. Two activities were undertaken to assist in this determination:

  1. A qualitative summary and comparison (“Relative Value Assessment”) of medical review program activities in the United States selected as candidate recommended strategies.
  2. The identification of barriers to implementing specific, selected practices, and strategies to overcome those barriers.

The first of these activities involved responses from 45 of the 51 licensing jurisdictions, sampled through a mailed survey to key licensing officials and medical staff; the second was accomplished through a 1½-day meeting held in Washington, DC, that included representatives from NHTSA; AAMVA; TransAnalytics project staff; and medical review staff from a subset of States chosen with the assistance of NHTSA and AAMVA. Each effort is described in more detail below.
