Your doctor wants more details on your brain’s ability to observe and process information. The DriveABLE assessment measures the cognitive abilities we need to drive safely.
The DriveABLE Cognitive Assessment Tool (DCAT) is a simple test that consists of six tasks. These tasks are performed on a touch screen (pictured below). All that is required during these six tasks:
The assessment is as simple to perform as using a telephone. During your assessment, you won’t be alone.
Throughout your assessment you will have a DriveABLE trained and certified assessor by your side. They will set you up for the assessment, explain every task to you, and provide you with an opportunity to practice each task before it starts.
Your Doctor may have recommended this assessment based on your medical history. Medical conditions can cause even the best driver to become unsafe. Driving is a complex task in which memory, attention, judgment and other cognitive abilities are used in concert to guide successful performance. Many medical conditions such as Memory Loss, Stroke, Heart Disease, and Diabetes can impact driving abilities. Even if no single condition is severe, several conditions can combine to make a person unsafe to drive. Medications can also affect your ability to drive safely.
DriveABLE provides an unbiased objective measure of the cognitive skills required for driving.
