If you or a loved one is in a wheelchair and want to start driving, you’ll need to contact a professional Certified Driver Rehabilitation Specialist (CDRS) who will evaluate your needs and provide you with a prescription for mobility equipment.
A CDRS, with knowledge of your specific medical and visual conditions, can provide a comprehensive evaluation and help you determine your safe driving potential.
An assessment should include:
- Functional ability
- Reaction time
- Behind-the-wheel evaluation
A CDRS will also provide the required training that you may need to effectively and safely drive a modified vehicle.
