Standardization Vital to Field Test Reliability

The Importance of Standardization The validity of SFST results is dependent upon practitioners following the established, standardized procedures for test administration and scoring. NHTSA's SFST Student Manual states that the procedures demonstrated in the training program describe how SFSTs should be administered under ideal conditions, but that ideal conditions do not always exist in the field. Variations from ideal conditions, and deviations from the standardized procedures, might affect the evidentiary weight that should be given to test results.Courts in several states have reviewed the admissibility of field sobriety tests that assess physical coordination and have held that deviations in the administration of...

Standardized Field Sobriety Tests; What Is the 3-Test Battery

The Standardized Field Sobriety Test (SFST) is a battery of three tests administered and evaluated in a standardized manner to obtain validated indicators of impairment and establish probable cause for arrest. These tests were developed as a result of research sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and conducted by the Southern California Research Institute. A formal program of training was developed and is available through NHTSA to help law enforcement officers become more skillful at detecting DWI suspects, describing the behavior of these suspects, and presenting effective testimony in court. Formal administration and accreditation of the program...

Preface to the 2006 Standardized Field Sobriety Test Manual

Preface to the 2006 Version of the NHTSA Student SFST Manual The procedures outlined in this manual describe how the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFSTs) are to be administered under ideal conditions. We recognize that the SFSTs will not always be administered under ideal conditions in the field, because such conditions will not always exist. Even when administered under less than ideal conditions, they will generally serve as valid and useful indicators of impairment. Slight variations from the ideal, i.e., the inability to find a perfectly smooth surface at roadside, may have some affect on the evidentiary weight given to the results. However, this does not necessarily make...

DUI Arrest; When do I go to court?

If you are placed under arrest you will be afforded the opportunity to make bond. In most jurisdictions, an officer has the discretion to release you to a sober friend upon completion of the testing procedure.  Some officers use this discretion as a means of extracting cooperation.  If you are held overnight you will be required to make bond.  In a D.U.I. case the bond is usually low enough that most people will only have to spend one night in jail. If, however, you are unable to make bail you will remain in jail until your first scheduled court appearance....
