Our driver rehabilitation specialists are experienced occupational and physical therapists with advanced training in driving rehabilitation. We provide driving evaluations to determine safe goals for travel.
Medical conditions can change the way we move, think, and see. If you show any of these changes or other characteristics, you may benefit from a driving evaluation with Adaptable Therapy Services:
A driving evaluation is an evaluation of an individual’s driving. It includes 3 main steps.
Step 1: A review of clinical testing of sensation, vision, movement, & thinking.
Step 2: A behind-the-wheel assessment in our driving rehab vehicle.
Step 3: Discussion of outcomes.
Step 2 of the driving evaluation takes place in our driving rehab car. We use our car because it has special equipment for added safety. Don’t worry! We appreciate that driving someone else’s car requires adjustment. Therefore, the first thing we will do is give you time to get use to our car. Then, once you are ready, the evaluation will begin.
During step 3 of the driving evaluation, we will talk to you and your family member about your outcome. Your DRS will talk about patterns of safety or concern with driving. Outcomes may include return or continue driving, additional driving training, hold on driving with plans for re-evaluation, or driving retirement.
No, as specialists, we evaluate your performance with driving and any impact from illness or injury. We work with you, your family, and doctor to help determine safe goals with driving. At times we will be asked to send reports to the department of motor vehicle, but we will always discuss this with you first. The department of motor vehicle is the licensing agency holds all authority for your driver’s license.
