An Occupational Therapist can assist in off road and on road driving assessments to make recommendations regarding the safety of an individuals driving, their potential to learn to drive safely and if any modifications are required either to the vehicle or to licence conditions. NDIS participants can have driving lessons and car modifications funded via NDIA if recommended.

Q How do I get as assessment and how long will it take?

A: Your doctor will be required to provide you with a medical clearance. Once received we can then proceed to book you into an off road assessment conducted in your home or in clinic. This will assess the speed of decision making and perception of road conditions. NOTE: We wont be testing you on your road rules. Once completed  the OT will write a report and if successful the driver will proceed to an on road assessment supervised by a driving instructor and the Occupational Therapist.
