About Driver Rehabilitation Services
The ability to drive plays an important part in a person’s overall independence. The skill of operating a motor vehicle may be impaired due to an injury, illness, or a congenital disability. Everyday tasks of going to work, the grocery store, the doctor’s office or participating in social activities become a major obstacle for someone who cannot drive. For persons with physical, cognitive, or visual impairments, the ability to regain driving skills or learn to drive for the first time is critical to leading an independent lifestyle.
