Domestic Violence Inventory-Short Form (DVI-Short Form): It is understandable that within the Criminal Justice System, as in all state and federal jurisdictions there are many offenders with reading disabilities. And some probation jurisdictions are overloaded in terms of volume and high-risk offenders. The DVI – Short Form was developed to meet these needs. The DVI-Short Form consists of 76 items (questions) and takes 15 minutes to complete. The DVI–Short Form is a shorter version of the Domestic Violence Inventory (DVI) and contains the same scales (measures): 1. Truthfulness Scale, 2. Violence (Lethality) Scale, 3. Control Scale, 4. Alcohol Scale, 5. Drugs Scale and 6. Stress Coping Abilities (stress management) Scale. Upon data (answers) admission, DVI-Short Form assessments are scored with reports printed with 2½ minutes. For more information (unique features, cost, example report, research, etc.) visit www.domestic-violence-tests.com. The DVI-Short Form is concise enough to be read to a group of domestic violence offenders (group testing) or to individual offender’s that have reading impairments.


Driver Inventory (DI): There are numerous Driving Under Suspension (DUS) offenders that come across the desk of a pre-trial, probation and community corrections officer. One of the most important questions that needs to be to answered is usually phrased "Is the offender ready to get his/her driver’s license back?" The Driver Inventory (DI) was developed for evaluators and assessors that want to focus upon driver attitudes, temperament and outlook. Due to zero tolerance rules/laws the DI does not explore substance abuse. The Driver Inventory (DI) is a non-offensive driver screen that does not contain an Alcohol Scale, Drug Scale or Substance Abuse Scale. The Driver Inventory (DI) has five (5) scales (measures): 1. Truthfulness Scale, 2. Driver Risk Scale, 3. Self-Rating Scale, 4. Aggressiveness Scale, and 5. Stress Coping Abilities (stress management) Scale. For more information (unique features, cost, example report, research, etc.) visit www.bdsltd.com or www.online-testing.com. Many transportation companies that adhere to zero tolerance requirements still want to assess driver attitudes, aggressiveness and stress handling abilities.

Driver Risk Inventory–II Short Form (DRI–II Short Form): Small groups have become an intricate component of probation, pre-trial, community corrections, and specialized DUI courts DUI offender treatment policy. The DRI-II Short Form allows staff to read it to groups of DUI/DWI offenders – should there be a need. High-volume assessors can save time while meeting the needs of the reading impaired. It can also be used as an alternative assessment option.

The DRI-II Short Form consists of 73 items (questions), takes around 15 minutes to complete and from data (answers) input is scored and printed reports are available within 2½ to 3 minutes. The DRI-II Short Form has five (5) scales (measures): 1. Truthfulness Scale, 2. Alcohol Scale, 3. Drugs Scale, 4. Driver Risk Scale and 5. Substance Abuse/Dependency Scale. The Substance Abuse/Dependency Scale utilizes DSM-IV criteria. In states that require their DUI/DWI offender test incorporate DSM-IV criteria, the DRI-II and DRI-II Short Form comply. If you are looking for a short assessment or test to use with your DUI/DWI offenders we suggest you consider the DRI-II Short Form.

Outreach Assessment (OA): Judges, probation officers, treatment staff and others make client assessment, screening and evaluation referrals to determine whether-or-not intervention, counseling or treatment are needed.

Reinstatement Review Inventory-II (RRI-II) (Driver’s License Reinstatement): The Reinstatement Review Inventory-II (RRI-II) is a variation of the RRI. In the RRI-II the Road Rage Scale is replaced by the Stress Coping Abilities Scale. The RRI-II is a screening test for applicants applying for reinstatement of their driver’s license after it was suspended or revoked. The RRI-II explores the question, "Has the applicant changed since their driver’s license was suspended or revoked?" The RRI-II should augment, not replace existing applicant review procedures. The RRI-II consists of 128 items and takes 25 to 30 minutes to complete. The RRI-II has six (6) scales (measures): 1. Truthfulness Scale, 2. Stress Coping Abilities (stress management) Scale, 3. Alcohol Scale, 4. Drugs Scale, 5. Comparative Change Scale and 6. Intervention Checklist. You can now choose the RRI which has a Road Rage Scale, or you can choose the RRI-II which replaced the Road Rage Scale with the Stress Coping Abilities Scale.
