COMPREHENSIVE DRIVER EVALUATION

Comprehensive driving evaluation determines the extent of a disability and how this impacts the ability to drive safely. Safety is our highest priority. Our precise evaluation includes clinical pre-driver screening along with behind-the-wheel assessment and adaptive equipment recommendations.

Behind-the-wheel evaluation includes:

      • Vehicle entry/seating
      • Operation of secondary controls
      • Adaptive equipment, if needed
      • Vehicle operation
      • Knowledge of traffic rules
      • Judgement/Decision-making
      • Visual awareness, attention

Ability to safely negotiate typical traffic environments. The results of our evaluation are first discussed
with our client, and then a detailed written report with recommendations is sent to the client, their physician, and/or the referral source.

are also available.
