Driving Assessment Clinic

A specialist clinic for assessment for return to driving, vehicle modifications and/or safety in continuing to drive due to medical conditions.

Calvary Rehabilitation Hospital has two rehabilitation specialists involved in the clinic who can provide medical clearance for driving and refer to our Occupational Therapist if required.

Occupational Therapy Driving assessments involve:

  • An off road assessment looking at Physical, visual and cognitive skills required for driving.
  • A practical assessment with a driving instructor and the Occupational Therapist to determine the impact of the medical condition on the person’s ability to drive and to trial vehicle modifications if required.
  • Recommendations are then made back to the medical specialist who will report to the Department of planning, transport and infrastructure.
