Active One OT Driver Assessment and Rehab Services

Occupational Therapy (OT) driver assessors have an additional qualification in driver assessment and rehabilitation and are registered with VicRoads. This allows them to help their clients to either obtain a drivers licence, or to ensure that current drivers maintain their ability to drive safely. An OT driver assessment may be required due to the potential impact of a medical condition or disability on driving skills or concern about driver behaviour. OT driver assessors provide a means to assess the ability of a physically or cognitively impaired person to drive safely.

The OT Driver Assessment Process


The OT driver assessment process is in two parts:

  1. Off-Road Assessment (up to 2 hours, clinic based): This helps to determine preparedness for driving. It includes medical and driving history, physical, cognitive and visual assessments and a test of road law knowledge.
  2. On-road driving test (up to 1.5 hours, with up to 1 hour of actual driving): This is performed to evaluate actual driving skills. It is completed on a separate day, in a dual controlled car with both a driving instructor and your OT driver assessor.

A dual-control car is used to ensure safety for the driver and other road users.

After the OT driver assessment process is complete, the OT driver assessor makes a recommendation to VicRoads.

VicRoads make the decision regarding licensing.

With client consent, we will send the referrer a copy of our OT driver assessment report.
