Driving, which is significant component of community mobility, is often considered a cornerstone for independence in our society. Medical conditions or age related changes can impact safe driving performance. Of the many important aspects of the rehabilitation process, driving preparation and assessment for those persons who desire independent transportation options should not be neglected.  Comprehensive programs can be used to not only evaluate a person’s fitness to drive, but they can also provide training and education. Through the use of specific techniques or adaptive equipment usage, driving rehabilitation specialists can assist persons in their quest for driving independence.
