Driving Mobility - On Stand Education - Stand L30

These CPD sessions will outline how Driving Mobility assessments identify physical and cognitive client abilities, with a view to maintaining or regaining safe driving.  Each assessment establishes a person’s fitness-to-drive relative to specific medical conditions and is carried out by qualified OTs and Approved Driving Instructors.


Learning outcomes:

  • Delegates will reflect on the role of occupational therapy within driving
  • Greater appreciation of the link between driving and independence
  • Consideration of the practical elements of a driving assessment ie. cognitive skills and physical function
  • Develop greater understanding of vehicle adaptions and support to remain driving
