Assessment Process

The principles of assessing a person’s fitness to drive are described in Part A of Assessing Fitness to Drive (Section 2).

This section has been expanded in the 2016 edition to provide improved guidance for examining health professionals, and is recommended reading. In particular, there is improved guidance regarding assessing and supporting functional driver capacity.

The step by step process of assessing a patient’s fitness to drive and reporting to the driver licensing authority is also described in Part A and illustrated with a series of easy-to-use flow charts. The charts can be downloaded as PDFs below.
