A Drive Ability driving assessment is a comprehensive evaluation designed to assess an individual's ability to operate a motor vehicle safely and efficiently. This assessment is typically recommended for individuals who may have experienced changes in their physical or cognitive abilities that could impact their driving skills. Common candidates for driveability assessments include older adults, individuals with medical conditions such as stroke or neurological disorders, and those recovering from injuries. The assessment often involves both theoretical and practical components, examining factors such as cognitive function, vision, reaction time, and overall physical capability. The goal is to determine whether an individual can drive safely or if any modifications, restrictions, or additional training may be necessary to enhance their driving skills and ensure road safety for both the driver and others on the road. Different from a driving test, the assessment is designed to review your driving and give you an honest opinion of your skills and ability. We know that this may seem daunting, but our Approved Driving Instructors will put you at ease. You can refer yourself for driving support and advice, or a driving assessment, which is completely free or Health and social care professionals, the DVLA and Motability can refer people too.
You may want to investigate how you might be able to drive using vehicle modifications because of a physical disability or because you’ve become less able following a stroke, for example
You might want to check that you’re still able to drive safely following a recent diagnosis of a medical condition, such as dementia
You may want reassurance as you get older, and your reactions have slowed a little
