For many adults, driving represents independence, competence, freedom, and control. It is a way to access health care, buy necessities, and stay connected to family and friends. When illness or injury limits driving abilities, a deeply personal and emotional change may occur, so regaining those skills becomes a top priority for many individuals.
Successful completion of a driver’s evaluation helps identify problems that interfere with safe driving, and reassures health care providers, family members, and patients of their competency to drive.
At Cindy Cohen School of Driving, we can provide you with an evaluation, and work with patients to provide them with the skills needed to give them the opportunity to return to safe driving. Our driving instructors are approved by the Department of Education in PA. Our goal with a Senior Evaluation is to mentor and assess per the stated needs of the senior, and his/her family or medical provider.
During the evaluation, drivers receive ongoing feedback on their performance with the goal of helping the driver demonstrate consistent safe driving practices. At the end of the evaluation, the Instructor will talk to the family member, or we can write a detailed report and send it to your doctor.
Clients who are ideal for this service include those who have:
- Age-related impairment
- A desire to receive feedback about their ability to safely operate a motor vehicle
The on-road evaluations take place at:
3131 West Carson Street
Pittsburgh, PA 15204
We can make other arrangements if you are not able to come to our office.
