Cleveland Clinic Adult Driver and Rehabilitation Program
Adults who have experienced any physical, neurological, visual or cognitive change in function that has an impact on driving performance may benefit from a driving assessment. Our goal is to help individuals return to independent driving, as long as they are safe to do so.
The Cleveland Clinic Driver Evaluation and Rehabilitation Program provides a clinical and on-the-road assessment of driving skills, with recommendations to the client, family and physician.
Clinical Assessment Testing, determined by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), includes:
- Vision function
- Visual perception
- Cognitive function
- Strength and range of motion
- Reaction time
The on-the-road evaluation takes 45-60 minutes and is completed in a Cleveland Clinic vehicle adapted for driving evaluation.
We are here to help older drivers, their families and their physician through a difficult but important change in lifestyle.
