Driving Assessments

Helping you regain your driving independence

Our specialised occupational therapists provide support for individuals that may have an impairment or medical condition to be able to drive safely, independently and legally.

Our Driving Assessment Program is run by a specialist driving assessment occupational therapist who will partner with you to understand your challenges and provide you with every opportunity possible to regain your driving independence.

Our team will support you every step of the way.

Our driving assessments are done in two parts made up of an OFF road assessment followed by an ON road assessment. OFF road assessments are composed of:

  • Vision screen,
  • Physical screen,
  • Cognitive assessment and various testing.

If successful, this is followed by the ON road assessments:

Clients will be assessed in a vehicle with dual controls. A driving instructor will give directions and our specialist driving assessor will also be present to provide support and observe the driving behaviour.

Multi-disciplinary team

Our multi-disciplinary approach means choosing Kern for a driving assessment allows you to utilise any other therapies you may require to reach your goals such as physiotherapy, speech pathology, psychology or any our specialist services .

Our Occupational Therapy Driving Assessment Services provide the following:

  • Standardised assessments to determine if individuals with diagnosed medical conditions are safe or unsafe to drive.
  • Family centred -our team of OTs will always involve the individual’s family throughout the complete process.
  • Formulate a remediation program to address identified impairments and to facilitate a smoother learning and relearning to drive experience.
  • Vehicular modifications appropriate for drivers with medical conditions.
