What to expect from a driving evaluation
- I travel to the client’s home, meet with the client and their support system. I perform an interview, testing of vision/reaction time/cognitive processing/physical abilities.
- Then I take people out in my vehicle, which is equipped with an instructor’s brake. The client drives to the places they commonly drive for about 45 minutes to and hour.
- After we return home, we go over my evaluation and recommendations. The goal is to drive safely as long as possible.
- If adaptive equipment is needed to drive, the client will be testing this out during the evaluation. Most people need more training and practice prior to installing it in their vehicles.
I have helped hundreds of people return to driving. I look forward to working with you!
