Driver’s license in Iran and the necessity of psychological tests.

Official statistics indicate that approximately 50 people lose their lives in traffic accidents in Iran every day. Over the past two decades, close to 400,000 individuals in Iran have lost their lives due to these accidents, and more than 6 million people have been injured; these staggering figures reflect the depth of a human tragedy.

An evaluation of the statistics from the past five years of Nowruz traffic accidents shows that the highest number of Nowruz fatalities was recorded in the year 1402 with 1,217 deaths, unfortunately marking a 6.2% increase compared to the same period the previous year.

Road infrastructure deterioration and low quality of vehicles can be secondary factors in traffic accidents, but the primary factor in driving accidents in Iran is the mental, psychological, and psychiatric health issues of drivers. Although artificial intelligence and electronic aids offer hope for long-term accident reduction, implementing advanced navigation systems in Iran requires overcoming legislative, scientific, technological, and economic barriers.

The most effective short-term solution is to mandate high-standard psychological tests and make psychological testing periodic, especially for high-risk drivers.
