Adaptive Driving

About our Adaptive Driving Program

We help get you back behind the wheel, safely. Our Adaptive Driving Program provides specialized testing and training to help you reacquire driving skills following a change in your mental or physical condition. Based on your vehicle and your specific needs, we can help identify the exact adaptive equipment and training you’ll need to become a safe, independent driver. Driving is a privilege, and there is no guarantee that every patient is capable of returning to driving. Our goal is to evaluate, train and restore mobility to patients who can demonstrate they are ready to safely return to the road. Adaptive Driving FAQs
