Description: The Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) program was developed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) with input from the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Technical Advisory Panel 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) programs.

Students start with a 4-hour SFST refresher to ensure their proficiency as SFSTs are the cornerstone of all impaired driving enforcement. The remaining 12 hours of instruction introduce the seven (7) established drug categories, affiliated signs and symptoms, methods of ingestion, paraphernalia, additional roadside tests including the Modified Rhomberg Balance and Lack of Convergence tests, current drug trends and an overview of the Drug Evaluation and Classification Program (DECP). It is not designed to replace the DRE program; rather, it is intended to supplement the DECP by enabling officers to recognize impairment resulting from controlled substances and to utilize a DRE. ARIDE is a prerequisite course for Drug Recognition Expert (DRE).

Training Audience: This training is open to all law enforcement and state troopers who have successfully completed SFST Training and are proficient with SFST.

Prerequisite(s): Successful completion of SFST.

Course Length: 16-hours

Equipment Needs: Pen / pencil, note-taking material.

Pennsylvania Department of Health Continuing Education Hours: None
