Welcome to Modified Driving Solutions – Your leading Provider of Occupational Therapy Driving Assessments in Sydney and Surrounding Areas

At Modified Driving Solutions, we are aware of the barriers people may face when trying to drive again following an injury at their workplace. Recovering from major injury is a gradual and demanding process for many people, involving numerous medical testing and clearances.

Often, a return to driving is one of the final stages of recovery, and an OT driving assessment is commonly recommended to determine a person’s medical capacity to drive. For these situations, we’re here to provide timely and efficient driving assessments funded through Icare.

All We Do are OT Driving Assessments

While other OT services may have a broader scope of practice, at Modified Driving Solutions, we specialise in Occupational Therapy driving assessments. We have been conducting these specific assessments for almost a decade, ensuring our team provides you with expert guidance and personalised solutions to help you recapture your independence on the road.

Our Key Points of Difference

Driving Assessment at your home

Our friendly team come to your residence, offering convenience and peace of mind for our clients. By conducting assessments in the familiar surroundings of your home, your family and friends are welcome to sit in during the assessment process.

Brief Waiting Times

Unlike other providers who have several months’ waiting lists, we boast short waiting times. We understand that Icare participants are often eager to return to driving and work, and we aim to see you within 2-3 weeks of making the referral. In line with our commitment to minimise waiting times, we may be able to book appointments on the weekends, after hours or on public holidays.

Efficient Reporting to RMS and treating Icare team

We understand the urgency involved with submitting assessment reports to the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) and getting you back on the road. At Modified Driving Solutions, we guarantee to complete your details report within 24 hours of completing the assessment. This commitment ensures a prompt and streamlined process.

Coverage Beyond Sydney

We acknowledge that outside of Sydney, there are sometimes scarce services that specialise in OT driving assessments. While we are Sydney-based, we may be able to see people in other regions of New South Wales beyond the Greater Sydney area.

To Book in for an Assessment

Step 1: Contact Us

Contact us via phone or email. This can be by you, your doctor or Icare case worker. We need to know your personal details, nature of your injury and Icare claim number. We will respond to your enquiry within 24 hours.

Step 2: Schedule Your Assessment

Once we have all the details of your situation and Icare claim, we will organise an assessment date that works for you.

Step 3: Assessment at Your Home

Our driver trained Occupational Therapists will visit your home for the assessment. It takes 2 hours and involves conducting off-road and on-road tests. This includes driving a dual control car with a driving instructor. Any vehicle modifications required will also be supplied.

Step 4: Report and RMS notification Within 24 Hours

Post-assessment, we will complete a comprehensive report outlining our findings and recommendations. This report is promptly submitted to the RMS within 24 hours, so you can rediscover the sensation of driving as soon as possible. Your Icare team and treating doctor will also be provided with the report, ensuring a more coordinated and transparent resolution. If supplementary driving lessons and/or vehicle modifications have been recommended, we can also expedite this.
