Older Driver Assessment

Older Driver Home Assessment

The Transport Accident Commission has found that there are higher risks for those aged 70 and over when it comes to the likelihood of car accidents or crashes. You should take into consideration the many different changes that come with age and how they can impact elderly drivers. This is a natural part of aging and can mean there are differences in how they drive. Over 50% of older drivers are still safe on the road - and that assessment is just a way to show this and let you keep doing what you're good at. We understand getting back on the road can be a daunting task. If you feel you're no longer really comfortable driving and need a little help to get back up to speed, it's time for some driving lessons with friendly instructors who have the experience and skills to provide top-level instruction in a safe environment.

How it works

Elderly people or senior drivers have their practical driving tests assessed by checking if each of their visual, motor, and cognitive functions are in good shape. This is done to make sure that they have the physical capabilities required for safe driving.- Pick up and drop off from your home or school

All RMS driving test and home assessments follow the same criteria. The practical drive has set requirements. The assessment is usually about 15 to 20 minutes in duration, and you will generally drive from point A to point B. If you commit a driving behavior like not stopping at a Stop sign or speeding during the test, you'll fail regardless of the rest of your performance. Your result will be based on your driving performance in a range of situations and your ability to demonstrate safe driving behaviors.
