Giving you the skills you need to get back behind the wheel.
The Rehabilitation Driving Program at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center helps restore mobility to those affected by neurological, orthopedic or developmental conditions, or to those who have experienced age-related changes in function. Our goal is to help you return to safe, independent driving.
We provide driving evaluation services for:
- Older drivers – We evaluate the older driver’s ability to safely operate a vehicle, including those with early onset dementia, Alzheimer’s disease or Parkinson’s Disease.
- Drivers with acquired disabilities – We evaluate the ability of the physically or visually impaired driver to obtain a driver’s license and safely operate a vehicle, including those affected by stroke, brain injury and other conditions.
