When do you know it’s time for patient to stop driving


Hi @sell1958, if you're concerned about your ability to drive safely or the ability of someone you care about, you might consider getting a driving evaluation. The driving evaluation gives a snapshot view of your skills at the present time. The goal of the evaluation is to provide information on someone’s knowledge of rules, their response times, and physical and cognitive skills both in and outside the vehicle. It can provide verification that your skills in the car are still safe despite changes in thinking. See more info in this blog post:

Are you concerned about your driving abilities or the abilities of someone you care about?
