Testing Centers

Professional evaluations of a senior’s driving ability.

Aging can affect a person’s ability to safely operate a motor vehicle. There are a number of centers around the state that provide Comprehensive Driver Assessments to evaluate an individual’s driving ability and safety.

Following an evaluation, therapeutic intervention to improve driving skills may be recommended and provided. Adaptive driving equipment may also be recommended to improve or maintain driving capabilities.

A helpful guide from The Hartford explains the evaluation process further.
