What does a clinical driving assessment involve?
Usually an assessment requires one visit. Visual, physical, and cognitive testing is performed during the assessment. Driving performance and brake-reaction time will be evaluated on a driving simulator.

Often a determination is made during the initial visit. However, occasionally an additional session will be requested for a practical, behind-the-wheel assessment.

How long will the appointment last?

Visits usually take three hours for a standard driving evaluation. If the client proceeds to an on-road assessment, that will take about 70 minutes.



With support from a grant from the Parkinson's Foundation, the lab has produced two educational videos. The first video shows practical tips and tricks for older individuals to safely enter and exit a car. The second video shows the portions of a fitness to drive assessment at the University of Kansas Medical Center.
