INTRODUCTION: Biofeedback therapy is essential for releasing the stress, gain awareness, and to control over psychophysiological processes. The current study deals with the impact of biofeedback therapy on drivers by comparing the performances of drivers on “Decision Time” (DT) test before and after the use of biofeedback therapy. METHODOLOGY: For this study, as a special case 40 drivers from special protection group were selected for administering the decision time (DT) from “Vienna Test System” before and after applying biofeedback therapy with respiratory training. RESULTS: The results of this study reveal the beneficial effects of biofeedback in reducing negative effects, thereby enhancing the behavioral performance of the drivers. CONCLUSIONS: Results obtained in this study recommend that biofeedback therapy training may be used as an adjunct to existing behavior modification and stress management programs of drivers adopted by the driver training institutes for enhancing driver's physical and psychological health.
