    An increasing number of commercial training products claim to improve older driver performance by train-ing underlying cognitive abilities. However, research examining transfer of such training to driving perfor-mance is limited. The current study examined whether 16 hours of training on a commercial training pack-age improved older adults' performance in a high-fidelity driving simulator. Data showed no differential improvements between the training group and a control group on any driving performance measure follow-ing training. The commercial training program did not improve the simulated driving performance of older adults.
