AOTA's nationwide database of driving programs and specialists can help you to locate services near you.
If you cannot find a driving specialist or program here,
please contact your local rehabilitation hospital's occupational therapy department for assistance.
Occupational therapists with such specialized training in driver rehabilitation are able to identify not only a driver's strengths but also the physical,
visual, and cognitive challenges the individual faces. As a result, occupational therapists can evaluate an individual's overall ability to operate a vehicle safely and, if needed,
recommend ways to limit risks.
Not all driver rehabilitation specialists are occupational therapists. But occupational therapists have the extensive training and knowledge needed to recognize the
impact of medical conditions and the aging process on driving performance. They use skill-building, behavioral, and adaptive approaches to keeping a person mobile in his or her community,
even if he or she must limit or stop driving.
