Driving Advisement

Driving safely requires sophisticated cognitive skills that (unlike physical or motor deficits) are often hidden to the casual observer. If you are recovering from a brain injury and are serious about resuming driving, and may have been affected by brain injury, we recommend and offer a comprehensive off-the-road evaluation of cognitive skills required for driving. These skills include:

  • Judgment
  • The ability to react quickly
  • Make rapid decisions
  • Adjust to changing circumstances
  • Control impulses
  • Respond consistently
  • Deal with more than one thing at a time
  • Endurance
  • Eye-hand coordination and tracking.

It is usually possible to complete this procedure in 3 hours.

Once you have successfully completed the clinical assessment, you will receive a referral for a behind-the-wheel evaluation. When all the information is in, we will help you and your family make a rational decision about driving.
