If you have a medical condition that may affect your ability to drive safely, your doctor may ask that you have a driving assessment to determine your medical fitness to drive. A driving assessment can only be conducted by an Occupational Therapist with the appropriate qualifications. Damien and Sarah have both completed postgraduate qualifications and have extensive experience as driving assessors.

A driving assessment consists of two components – an off-road assessment and an on-road assessment.
The off-road assessment consists of a thorough screen of the physical and cognitive skills required for driving. This component takes approximately 1 1/2 hours.
The on-road assessment is conducted in a dual control car with the Occupational Therapist and a driving instructor. It is conducted over a pre-determined route consisting of various traffic conditions and takes approximately 1 hour.

Following the above assessments, a comprehensive report is provided. This report provides detailed information regarding driver performance together with recommendations regarding

  • Licence and any recommended restrictions
  • Remediation – for example, lessons with a qualified instructor experienced in working with people with medical conditions
  • Car modifications – for example a spinner knob to enable safe one handed driving or hand controls for clients with spinal injuries or non-functional legs for driving
