Senior Drivers

DriveABLE

If you are concerned about a loved one's driving ability, we can help!

Driving skills can change. A range of medical problems can affect the ability to drive safely. People with cognitive impairment may be dangerous to themselves or others on the road. A knowledgeable informant who has observed the client’s driving skills can be useful in determining if a client should stop driving.

DORE: The DriveABLE On-Road Evaluation, provided by Suncoast Safety Council (SSC), is a scientifically based driving assessment and standardization of procedure for evaluating medically at-risk drivers.

Indicators of Unsafe Driving:

• Dents on car
• Difficulty understanding traffic signs
• Driving too fast or too slow
• Failure to notice street signs
• Getting lost in familiar areas
• Miscalculating speed and distances
• Near misses
• Poor judgment
• Traffic tickets/crashes
