Driving assessments and vehicle modification

The Department of Transport and Main Roads, your doctor or friends and family may request you to undertake an assessment if a medical illness, disability or age is affecting your driving. A driving assessment can determine your ability to drive or learn to control a vehicle safely. This assessment can only be conducted by a qualified driver trained occupational therapist. Vehicle modifications may be considered for a range of reasons to enable a person to drive safely, and stow their mobility aids to increase their level of independence. Vehicle modifications may also be required to allow a person to travel seated in a wheelchair and reduce the risk of injury during transfers. It is also possible to review vehicle ergonomics, transfers, and seating for an easier and more comfortable travel experience.
