We conduct studies with drivers of all ages, from 16 to 90+ years old. One common requirement for most of our studies is that participants have a valid US driver's license (sometimes we have studies for drivers who have only a driving permit & not a license yet). Our studies generally take 1-2 hours for each participant, and we compensate participants $20-$30 per hour, depending on the study. It is recommended that anyone who experiences motion sickness not participate in any of our driving simulator studies.
