For anyone with a disability, medical condition or age related condition beginning, continuing or returning to driving, an on-road driving assessment may be recommended by a medial health professional to establish whether they are fit to drive.
If now or in the future you are required to under-go an on-road driving assessment it should not be seen as something negative or as having a pass or fail outcome. Maintaining the driver’s lifestyle and employment-related mobility independence is paramount both for your medical professional and organisations like the Disabled Drivers Association.
In most cases, having a medical condition will not stop you from driving as the National Driver Licensing Authority (NDLS) is able to issue a conditional licence. This means that you may continue to drive as long as certain conditions or restrictions are met. The assessment may be a key component in developing strategies for you to begin, to continue or to return to driving. However in some cases it is just no longer safe for a person to drive.
