Driving Evaluation Program: Possible Outcomes

After the evaluation, appropriate recommendations will be made to the client and their doctor.  Sometimes it is found that individuals may benefit from a rehabilitation program to return to safe driving.  Some clients may be retrained to drive safely with a series of driving lessons and minor car modifications.  However, others may need to “retire” from driving altogether and plan for an alternative mode of transportation.  This may be a traumatic loss for a person whose driving symbolizes freedom, flexibility, and independence.  If needed, specialized skilled support will be made available to help individuals and their family ease through this major life-altering transition.
