 CDRS® Examination Preparation
 ADED Exam Prep

Planning on sitting for the CDRS® exam?  ADED’s Exam Prep tool, is an on-line study tool available to help you prepare for the exam.   Note: The 2019 exam cycle has ended, thus access to the site has been suspended.  The Exam Prep site will be available for 2020 exam candidates early 2020.  We are taking this time to add more content and resources to make the site a more powerful educational tool to use in preparation for taking the exam.


This Exam Prep Tool is an educational training tool to aid participants in examining their understanding of specific knowledge, skills, and/or competencies associated with driver rehabilitation. This exam prep tool serves to help exam candidates focus their study efforts and maximize their certification exam preparations. Use of this exam prep tool does not suggest, make claims to, or guarantee that a user will pass the CDRS® exam. This tool is an independent study instrument, unaffiliated with the examination, and considered to be an option available for the user’s certification exam preparation.


Offered at introductory pricing through 2019 and supported by the Adaptive Driving Alliance, this tool is available on-demand with a variety of subscriptions available to meet your budget. Exam Prep Tool fees are separate from ADED’s CDRS® application and fees.


REBATE AVAILABLE! The Adaptive Driving Alliance (ADA) is generously offering a $50.00 rebate to 3-or 6-month subscribers to ADED's Exam Prep program.  Rebate information and application is here:
