Fitness to drive reviews and rehabilitation

The guidelines published by the Road Safety Authority and the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland highlight “the need for all of us to appreciate that the state of our health impacts, to a greater or lesser degree, on our ability to drive safely”. The fitness to drive review is a comprehensive service that looks at all the skills required for driving that may be affected by ill health or disabilities/difficulties. For most people the review will include an off road and an on-road assessment. The on road assessment is completed by specially trained instructors. It is not a driving test.
