If your GP or the RMS request that you have a Driving Assessment for medical or age related reasons, Mend has specially trained registered occupational therapists to conduct this assessment. The assessment takes 2-3 hours and involves an off and on road assessment. The on road driving assessment is with a d disability trained driving instructor. The off road assessment involves an interview, a physical screen, cognitive testing and a brief test of road laws. A report is supplied to the RMS and a copy is sent to the client.
