Many clients will not ask about driving.  They may think it is too soon.  They may not imagine it is possible.  They may be afraid to hear the answer. Some lack self-awareness or the judgment to know “when to stop”.  These individuals may attempt driving - using operational skills to operate the controls but lacking strategic and executive skills to manage the driving environment safely. 

As an OT practitioner It is your ethical duty to offer education, strategies and to address risks.
