What types of conditions?
A person with various medical conditions or other injuries that potentially impacts on their driving ability may need an assessment. Some of the conditions include:
Memory or other problems with cognition
The Occupational Therapy driving assessment in Campbelltown is made up of two parts:
The OT completes a visual, cognitive and physical screen with the client in their home. This aims to identify any medical conditions that may affect an individual’s ability to drive in a safe manner. Family and friends are also welcome.
The client drives around in their local area with the OT and qualified driving instructor in a dual controlled car. The assessment looks at how the individual’s medical condition impacts on their driving.
After the Occupational Therapy driving assessment, the OT will inform the client of the assessment’s outcome. The OT’s report of the assessment will then be sent to the client, RMS and doctor (or source of referral).
How much does the assessment cost?
Cost depends on the distance our staff need to travel. Participants of the NDIS may be covered under their plan. There may be opportunities for health insurance subsidies.
How long does the process take?
The off-road assessment takes about 1-2hrs, and the on-road assessment takes 1hr. The RMS is notified of the assessment’s outcome within 24hours. The report will be written and sent to you, your referring Doctor and the RMS within 2 weeks.
What do I need on the day of the assessment?
You will need a Doctor’s letter outlining your medical history and medical clearance to sit the driving assessment.
