As we age, we’re mindful of our overall health through regular physicals, doctor visits and exercise. Why is driving a vehicle any different?
Loss of personal independence is one of the top worries for most aging seniors. Losing the right to drive can be emotionally traumatic for senior drivers and their families. DrivingMBA can help with that difficult decision through comprehensive driving assessments.
AAA and NHTSA recommend regular senior driving assessments to test skills and reactions as we age. As the technology in our cars continues to evolve, interacting with this technology, while concentrating on the road, can be challenging and a little scary for some seniors. That fear can cause panic and confusion, which can ultimately lead to tragedy on the road.
Aging seniors can experience challenges in a variety of senses that can affect their ability to drive safely. Loss of eyesight and hearing, slower reaction times, or the onset of medical conditions like Alzheimer’s and dementia, are all normal aging conditions that can make driving dangerous for the driver and others.
The Senior Assessment takes anywhere from two to three hours and includes a detailed report with a recommendation, based on performance. If after the assessment we determine that the driver is in need of “brushing up” on specific skills, we will design a customized driver training program to meet their specific needs.
