How important is it to get a driving specialist and undergo a driving assessment?

Get A Driving Specialist And Driving Assessment

Before you decide to start shopping for your wheelchair accessible vehicle, go see a driving specialist and get a driving assessment. A driving specialist is a physical therapist or occupational therapist who has experience and wheelchair accessible vehicle knowledge. You can try contacting the Association of Driver Rehabilitation Specialists (ADED) to find someone to assist you (800-290-2344).

To get an assessment of what wheelchair accessible vehicle adaptations will best suit your needs, it's also important to get a driving assessment. You'll get tested for physical and cognitive skills, perform an on the road driving assessment, and get a written prescription tailored just for you. You can find out more about what is involved through the ADED Website at www.infinitec.org/live/driving/driveassess.htm.
